The use of microwave technology in solid-phase organic synthesis has attracted much attention in recent years. The combination of solid support, either as a medium for chemical synthesis or as a carrier for organic reagents, with microwave heating offers several advantages over conventional techniques. Rapid and elevated heating of reaction mixtures can induce the completion of chemical transformations in minutes while several hours or days may be required for the same chemistry under… CONTINUE READING
