Publication of the Book "Microwave Assisted Cycloaddition Reactions"

Microwave Assisted Cycloaddition Reactionsby Davor Margetić, Ph.D., a member of the Laboratory for Physical-Organic Chemistry and the Division of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the  Ruđer Bošković Institute, was recently published as part of the series Chemical Engineering Methods and Technology by the New York publishing house of  Nova Science Publishers, Inc., New York.

The book demonstrates the importance of using microwave assisted organic synthesis as a new experimental technique, which makes modern organic synthesis more ecologically acceptable due to significantly enhanced reaction efficiency, lower energy consumption and a reduction in toxic organic wastes. Using the example of cycloaddition reactions, the basic principles and advantages of microwave synthesis are presented, which can be applied to all other types of organic reactions. The synthesis of many heterocyclic and polycyclic compounds is presented, with particular attention to the use of microwave radiation in the synthesis of natural compounds and functional organic materials. The practical value for laboratory work consists of information on the transfer of experimental conditions from classic thermal reactions, as presented in a separate chapter.
