Author(s): S.V Sharma, G. V. S Rama Sarma, B Suresh

Microwave-induced organic reaction enhancement chemistry is gaining popularity as a non-conventional technique for rapid organic synthesis. Important features of this technique are easy access to very high temperature, good control over energy input in a reaction and rapid synthesis of organic compounds. The advantages of microwave-induced organic reaction enhancement chemistry include requirement of simple, inexpensive instrument, lesser quantities of solvents and eco-friendly technology. It can be termed as 'e-chemistry' because it is easy, effective, economic and eco-friendly and is believed to be a step towards green chemistry. In this review, we have discussed development of microwave-induced organic reaction enhancement chemistry, methods involved in reaction set up and it's pharmaceutical applications.
