668 pages



Methods and principles in medicinal chemistry; v.52


The rapid growth of publications on using microwave radiation in chemical reactions has made it necessary to rewrite the 2005 literature survey completely, enlarging it from 409 pages to 668. Much of the growth has been in medicinal chemistry, where microwave-mediated reactions are being used as initial screening to indicate biological properties of new compounds, so that only a few candidates need be analyzed in more detail. Introductory chapters consider the history of microwave-assisted synthesis, microwave theory, equipment, and microwave processing techniques. The literature survey itself covers transition metal-catalyzed reactions, miscellaneous organic transformations, heterocycle synthesis, and combinatorial chemistry and high-throughput organic synthesis.
