Microwave-assisted organic synthesis is an enabling technology that has been exploited for a variety of applications including medicinal chemistry/drug discovery projects where speed is often a critical factor. In this review, applications of microwave-assisted organic synthesis employing a parallel processing regime are summarized. Examples include parallel synthesis in domestic microwave ovens, the use of specialized multivessel rotors and microtiter plates in dedicated multimode microwave reactors, and applications of SPOT synthesis on cellulose matrices.

Keywords: Parallel synthesis, microwave irradiation, multivessel rotors, microtiter plates, high-throughput synthesis
