The method of calculating strain energies from bond valencies, used earlier for hydrocarbon ring systems, is presently extended to strained systems containing heteroatoms. Strain energies of a number of heterocycles are reported and the contribution of bond strain to the molecular strain in these systems is discussed. It is shown that the bent bond model of strain quantitatively holds for heterocycles.
