Microwave-enhanced radiochemistry

Author affiliations


The application of microwaves to synthetic organic chemistry is currently experiencing considerable growth. Here we show how the area of radiochemistry, with particular reference to the synthesis of 3H- (or T-), 11C- and 18F-labelled compounds, can benefit. Faster, cleaner, more selective reactions are possible with the formation of much reduced levels of radioactive waste.
