Fast, easy, clean chemistry by using water as a solvent and microwave heating: the Suzuki coupling as an illustration

Author affiliations

Abstract

Water is an excellent solvent for organic chemistry and microwave heating offers a very efficient way of heating reaction mixtures. In this article, by focusing on the Suzuki reaction, it is shown how these two methods, used alone or together, can impact modern synthetic chemistry, making reactions faster, easier and cleaner.
