SANSEVERINO, Antonio Manzolillo. Microwaves in organic synthesis. Quím. Nova [online]. 2002, vol.25, n.4, pp.660-667. ISSN 0100-4042.

The application of microwave heating to organic synthesis is presented in a concise manner. Issues such as the history of the microwave oven, dielectric heating, reactions techniques (dry reactions, MORE chemistry), domestic ovens, microwave reactors, microwave effect and control of selectivities are discussed. Selected examples from the literature showed faster reactions, improved yields, less thermal degradations and cleaner reactions.

Keywords : microwave heating; organic synthesis; green chemistry.
