Abstract

Microwave (MW) radiation has been used in chemical analysis and chemical synthesis. MW heating under controlled conditions offers distinct advantages over conventional heating. The reactions are carried out in environmentally clean and safe solvents and in many cases, reactions can be carried out under solvent-free conditions. This method of synthesis has grown rapidly and found its use in various sectors. This paper reviews some of the reactions that have been accelerated with higher yields under MW irradiation. The application of MW-assisted synthesis in the medicinal and pharmaceutical industries will be emphasized.
