Description

Tailored to the needs of medicinal and natural products chemists, the second edition of this unique handbook brings the contents up to speed,
almost doubling the amount of chemical information with an additional volume.
As in the predecessor, a short introductory section covers the theoretical background and evaluates currently available instrumentation and
equipment. The main part of the book then goes on to systematically survey the complete range of published microwave-assisted synthesis
methods from their beginnings in the 1990s to mid-2011, drawing on data from more than 5,000 reports and publications. Throughout, the
focus is on those reactions, reagents and reaction conditions that work, and that are the most relevant for medicinal and natural products
chemistry. A much expanded section is devoted to combinatorial, highthroughput and flow chemistry methods.
