According to the concept of green chemistry, energy requirements of chemical processes should be minimized. Microwaveassisted
synthesis has provided significant energy saving for the chemical transformations in comparison with conventional oil-bath heating.
Reusability, stability and ease of handling are the significant points of solid-supported reagents, which make them an interesting field
for an organic chemist. The combination of microwave (MW) irradiation with solid-supported reagent becomes an interesting and popular
theme in synthetic organic chemistry. In this paper, we wish to review the recent applications of this important technique in the synthesis
of organic compounds with the hope to increase awareness of using this combination among organic chemists. We have also highlighted
the advantages and compared them with previously reported methods in order to show the importance and merits of this protocol.
