Recent advances in the development of environmentally benign heterogeneous catalytic microwave-assisted synthetic reactions are reviewed. The work includes two main chapters, highlighting acid and metal-catalyzed reactions. The literature data are summarized based on the chemical nature of reaction types, such as condensations, protection-deprotection, rearrangements, cyclizations, couplings etc.

Keywords: Solid acid, metal catalysts, microwave irradiation, condensation, rearrangement, cyclization-ring opening, coupling, organic synthesis, heterogeneous catalytic, microwave
