This chapter presents an outline of chemical reactions performed while utilizing microwave irradiation. The improvement in economic strategies has taken cognizance and acknowledgment of environment-friendly and cost-effective procedures having the most negligible impact on the environment. Compared to other methods, microwave-assisted methods proved to be more favorable substitutes for conventional laboratory heating systems; many chemical reactions have been accomplished, refining prevailing procedures with practical conclusions than the reactions proceeded under the conventional heating system. Reactions executed via catalysis in an aqueous medium enhanced the eco-friendly procedures, and the reactions executed via catalysis in fluid medium enhanced environmental conventions. In this chapter, we will discuss microwave-assisted catalytic approaches, which have been used for the preparation of various heterocyclic compounds, preparation of peptides, urea and coordination polymers having carboxyl group, and various other chemical reactions. The focus of this work is to highlight the recent advances in the field of Microwave-assisted organic reactions like oxidation, reduction, coupling, functionalization, heterocyclic compounds synthesis, multi-component reactions, and nucleophilic substitutions in water.

Keywords: Microwave irradiation, Microwave-assisted synthesis, Green chemistry.
