Abstract

The science of green chemistry was developed to meet the increasing demand for environmentally benign chemical processes. This chapter attempts to give an overview of microwave-assisted metal-catalyzed homogeneous transformations in neat water, providing a personal selection of both pioneering and recently published examples. Applications include cross-couplings, Heck reactions, carbonylations, Sonogashira reactions, nucleophilic substitutions and some additional transformations. We believe that the use of water as a non-toxic reaction medium, in combination with metal catalysis and microwave heating, will be of importance in the search for green laboratory-scale synthesis.

Keywords:

  • microwave heating;
  • homogeneous catalysis;
  • water;
  • cross-coupling;
  • green chemistry
