Green Revolution in Chemistry by Microwave Assisted Synthesis: A Review

  title={Green Revolution in Chemistry by Microwave Assisted Synthesis: A Review},
  author={Savita Belwal},
Green chemistry efficiently utilizes raw materials (preferably renewable), eliminates waste, and avoids the use of toxic or hazardous reagents and solvents in the manufacture and application of chemical products. Microwave assisted technique opens up new opportunities to the synthetic chemist in the form of new reactions that are not feasible using conventional heating and serve a flexible platform for chemical reactions. Over the past five years there has been a dramatic uptake in the use of…
