This book demonstrates the underlying principles of microwave dielectric heating and, by reference to a range of organic reaction types, it s effective use in synthetic organic chemistry. To illustrate the impact microwave assisted organic synthesis can have on chemical research, case studies drawn mainly from the pharmaceutical industry are presented.
