Microwave-assisted synthesis in the pharmaceutical industry a current perspective and future prospects

In the past five years there has been a dramatic upsurge in the use of microwave heating within the pharmaceutical industry to facilitate the chemical synthesis of new chemical entities. The increased uptake of this technology has been catalysed in part by the observation that reaction rates for the best cases could be accelerated 1,000-fold.

Microwave-Assisted Orgainc Synthesis - An Enabling Technology with Disruptive Potential

Since the original publications on the benefits of conducting organic reactions in a microwave by Gedye (1) and Majetich (2) in the mid-80s, the uptake of this technique was sluggish at best for the next 12-14 years.
