This paper describes past and current microwave-assisted methodologies for the synthesis of porphryins and porphyrin derivatives, including porphyrin precursors such as dipyrromethanes. The review is organized in two main topics, porphyrin synthesis and porphyrin reactivity under microwave irradiation and covers solventless and solution reactions.

Keywords: Hydroporphyrin, metalloporphyrin, microwave irradiation, microwave synthesis, porphyrin, tetrapyrrolic macrocycles.
