Benefits of Microwaves
Microwave activation as a non-conventional energy source has become a very popular and useful technology in organic chemistry. The two major advantages are:

  • Shorter reaction times
  • Reactions are completed within minutes (not hours or days) which results in faster protocol development or testing of creative ideas.

  • Improved selectivity
  • Oftentimes higher yields are observed which results in easier work-up and creation of less waste.
