Synthesis of Aziridines and Oxaziridines from Imines describes both new and old methods for the synthesis of aziridines from imines and covers an important and rapidly growing branch of heterocyclic chemistry. Readers will have access to different methods and information allowing them to evaluate which method is most suitable for particular cases. Several important advances in this area have been witnessed in recent years and discovering efficient novel methods for the synthesis of aziridines has been very active field of research. Its powerful synthetic utility has been described by an overpowering amount of documentation on the approaches for the formation of aziridine.

The smallest possible saturated azaheterocycle, aziridine, is well-known to organic chemists for its tremendous potential in pharmaceutical chemistry and organic synthesis. The general biological importance of aziridines is proven by the fact that they found several uses as subunits in pharmacologically active compounds such as antitumor agents, enzyme inhibitors, and antibiotics. Although aziridines are highly reactive, this framework occurs in many synthetic compounds and the natural products of biological interest also contain aziridine skeleton in their structures.
