This chapter discusses the chemistry of six-member heterocyclic compounds containing at least one nitrogen atom and one ‘unusual’ atom such as boron, gallium, silicon, germanium, tin, lead, phosphorus, arsenic or antimony. The nomenclature used in the chapter commonly uses the word endings inine to denote a six-member heterocyclic ring, which is fully unsaturated or –inane to denote fully saturated. The precedence of heteroatom numbering is oxygen > sulfur > nitrogen > phosphorus > silicon > germanium > boron > gallium. The chapter attempts to use a systematic nomenclature, unless the names are in common usage, where the both names appear in the section heading. The structure of reactions and synthesis for the compounds and the chemistry involved are discussed and provided for the reader.
