Heterocyclic compound

  • heterocyclic compound
  • Compound in which the ring structure is a combination of more than one kind of atom.
Abstract from DBPedia
    A heterocyclic compound or ring structure is a cyclic compound that has atoms of at least two different elements as members of its ring(s). Heterocyclic chemistry is the branch of organic chemistry dealing with the synthesis, properties, and applications of these heterocycles. Examples of heterocyclic compounds include all of the nucleic acids, the majority of drugs, most biomass (cellulose and related materials), and many natural and synthetic dyes. More than half of known compounds are heterocycles. 59% of US FDA-approved drugs contain nitrogen heterocycles.

    複素環式化合物(ふくそかんしきかごうぶつ、(heterocyclic compound)は、環の中に少なくとも2種類の異なる元素を含む環式化合物である。複素環化学(Heterocyclic chemistry)は、有機化学の1分野で、複素環式化合物の合成、特性、応用等を扱う。 複素環式化合物の例としては、全ての核酸、薬品の大部分、バイオマス(セルロースや関連化合物)の大部分、多くの天然や合成染料がある。アメリカ食品医薬品局の認証する薬品の59%は窒素複素環を含んでいる。
