Organic synthesis efficiency can take considerable advantage from microwave heating. Compared to conventional heating, it allows to improve the reactions speed and yield through an energy-efficient, clean, and easy-to-use processing tool. Transition-metal catalyzed cross-coupling reactions and in particular the Suzuki- Miyaura cross-coupling is powerful and widely used tool for the formation of carbon-carbon bonds. Crosscoupling reactions are of large interest for the bonding of a broad range of functional groups, in particular biaryl groups, allowing for a strong stereoselectivity. In this paper, recent research results concerning the application of microwave heating in Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reactions are reviewed with particular emphasis on reactions involving supported Pd as a catalyst.
