Graphical Abstract:


Microwave Mediated Organic Synthesis (MMOS) is typical on the proficient heat shift carried out by dielectric heating, which in turn, is primarily dependent on the capability of the reagent or solvent to take up microwave energy. The employment of microwave energy has witnessed a fast expansion in the past two decades, with novel and pioneering applications in peptide and organic synthesis, material sciences, polymer chemistry, biochemical processes and nanotechnology. This review summarizes current MW- mediated catalytic reactions in use for the synthesis of a diversity of N-heterocycles by Multi- Component Reactions (MCRs) and a variety of miscellaneous reactions. In addition, the review addresses some aspects of the use of nanoparticles for a diversity of applications in microwave chemistry.

Keywords: Microwave, organic synthesis, multi-component reaction, N-heterocycles, nanotechnology, dielectric heating.
