Advances in Organic Synthesis is a book series devoted to the latest advances in synthetic approaches towards challenging structures. The series presents comprehensive reviews written by eminent authorities on different synthetic approaches to selected target molecules and new methods developed to achieve specific synthetic transformations or optimal product yields. Advances in Organic Synthesis is essential for all organic chemists in academia and the industry who wish to keep abreast of rapid and important developments in the field.

This volume presents the following chapters:

  • - “On Water” And “In Water” Strategies for Heterocyclic Transformations
  • - Ionic Liquid Based Polyoxometalates as Functionalized Organic-Inorganic Hybrid Materials for Catalytic Organic Reactions
  • - Recent Advances in the Synthesis and Bio-Applications of some Oxygen and Sulphur Containing Seven Membered Heterocyclic Compounds
  • - Application of Nitriles on the Synthesis of 5-Membered Azaheterocycles: An Update from 2014 To 2020
  • - The Role of Carbon-Based Solid Acid Catalysts in Organic Synthesis


The 14th volume of Advances in Organic Synthesis presents recent exciting developments in synthetic organic chemistry. The chapters are written by authorities in the field. This volume features contributions focused on “on-water” and “in-water” synthesis strategies for heterocyclic transformations, ionic liquid based polyoxometalates as functionalized organic-inorganic hybrid materials, synthesis and bio-applications of some oxygen and sulphur containing seven membered heterocyclic compounds, applications of nitriles in the synthesis of 5-membered azaheterocycles and the role of carbon-based solid acid catalysts in organic synthesis.

This book should prove to be a valuable resource source for organic chemists, pharmaceutical scientists and postgraduate students seeking updated and critically important information on recent important developments in synthetic organic chemistry. I hope that the readers will find these reviews valuable and thought-provoking so that they may trigger further research in the quest for new developments in the field.

I am thankful to the efficient team of Bentham Science Publishers for the timely efforts made by the editorial personnel, especially Mr. Mahmood Alam (Director Publications), Mr. Obaid Sadiq (in-charge Books Department) and Ms. Asma Ahmed (Manager Publications).
