While microwave dielectric heating had been widely exploited in several organic chemistry areas to accelerate and improve reactions yields, it has not been often applied to phosphorus chemistry since the beginning of the 21th century. Recently, there has been an important increase in the number of reported uses of microwave in several fields of phosphorus chemistry. This review focuses on a literature survey of the uses of microwave “flash heating” in this chemistry area. Where possible, the relative advantages of this methodology will be compared to classical heating.
