Aromatic heterocyclic chemistry is a vast subject that has been and continues to be a focus of interest in both the academic and industrial worlds. Aromatic heterocycles are found in nature (for example in nucleic acids and indole alkaloids) and have been widely used as herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, dyes, and as pharmaceuticals.
The cyclic structure of these compounds must contain at least one heteroatom (usually N, O or S) and may vary in size (5 and 6-membered heterocyclic structures are most common). The aromaticity of these compounds can be viewed in two different ways: (a) it is inherited (for example aniline) because the structure meets all the standard conditions associated with aromaticity, or (b) it is earned (for example pyrrole) via the delocalization of a lone pair of electrons from the heteroatom.
This special issue of Molecules will consider any submissions associated with heteroaromatic chemistry (including but not limited to: biological, theoretical and mechanistic studies). However, the primary focus of this special issue is related to the synthesis and reactions of heteroaromatic compounds.
