With a focus on the fast-growing use of microwave heating as a tool for sustainable chemistry, this text covers an extremely broad range of related topics, emphasizing several currently popular areas. Detailing its use as an enabling technology, especially in organic chemistry, the author cites the key advantages of microwave over conventional heating, including shorter reaction times, higher product yields, and enhanced selectivity. Unlike other books on microwave heatinga "which generally focus on just one particular area, such as organic or medicinal chemistrya "this application-driven text showcases the breadth of scope of microwave heating in preparative chemistry.
