Due to their extraordinary properties, such as the ionic composition, good thermal stability, low vapor pressure, and solution interactions, ionic liquids can be used as solvents, reagents, and heating aids in conjunction with microwave chemistry. Synthesis of diverse molecules can be improved with the use of the ionic liquids assisted microwave heating due to fast reaction times, simple reaction work-up, and catalyst recovery. This mini-review outlines this newly emerging field.

Keywords: microwave heating, ionic liquids, fast reactions, organic synthesis
