It is recognized that a large number of bioactive compounds are cyclic molecules containing one or several heteroatoms (N, O, S, etc…). In this course, the chemical properties of the most representative 6- and 5-membered-ring  types of heterocycles and the major methods used for their synthesis will be reviewed. Applications will be extended to more complex structures. Nomenclature rules will also be explained and exemplified.
