[ Vol. 8 , Issue. 2 ]


Seema Bag, Sujaya Dasgupta and Bela Torok   Pages 237 - 261 ( 25 )


Recent advances in the development of environmentally benign heterogeneous catalytic microwave-assisted synthetic reactions are reviewed. The work includes two main chapters, highlighting acid and metal-catalyzed reactions. The literature data are summarized based on the chemical nature of reaction types, such as condensations, protection-deprotection, rearrangements, cyclizations, couplings etc.
