Microwave-assisted synthesis of medium-sized heterocycles

Author affiliations

Abstract

The development of new strategies for synthesis of medium-sized heterocycles has remained a highly attractive but challenging proposition. In the last few years, the application of microwave irradiation has greatly facilitated the construction of such heterocyclic ring systems through a myriad of different synthetic approaches. This feature article illustrates the progress made in the microwave-assisted synthesis of medium-sized heterocycles with an emphasis on examples describing the use of a dedicated microwave synthesizer.
