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.

Key Features

  • Provides a broad overview of microwave enhanced chemistry
  • Written by internationally renowned scientists
  • Includes exercises and worked problems which can support more independent study


Advanced undergraduate and graduate students and researchers or lecturers in Organic chemistry

@qu: "Bogdal's book is more of a practical guide to using the techniques of microwave-assisted organic synthesis in the laboratory. The book is well suited for both undergraduate and beginning graduate students. The 87 tested experimental procedures truly set this work apart from previous books on the subject. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through professionals; two-year technical program students." @source: CHOICE, September 2006, L.J. Liotta, Stonehill College
