Microwave-assisted Organic Synthesis: One Hundred Reaction Procedures provides readers with a broad overview of microwave assisted organic synthesis, enabling students and researchers alike to produce more efficient and high yield syntheses while saving time and resources. The work addresses key issues faced by chemistry laboratories in academia and in industry, including an ever increasing need for procedures which are low-waste, energy efficient, high yield, occur over a short reaction period, and use environmentally friendly solvents. All these factors play an important role in the development of "green chemistry" methods, making this book an excellent resource for any laboratory or library.
