“The authors present a good over view of the tools and methods for micro wave-assisted organic synthesis (MOAS).”  (The Catalyst, 1 February 2012)

“The authors have produced a gem of a book, and in an area where coherent practical training is lacking, this book is a welcome addition.” (Development and Change July, 2009)

"I read this book with pleasure.... I am sure that this excellent guide will become the standard reference work in the field and clearly is a 'must have' for anybody getting started with microwave-assisted organic chemistry." (Angewandte Chemie International Edition, April 2009)
