Abstract

The most important goal for chemists is to ensure that the next generation of synthetic protocols for drugs and fine chemical synthesis is more sustainable and greener than the current generation. This can be achieved using non-conventional energy sources, such as microwave, ultrasound, and photochemical chemistry, in conjugation with aqueous reaction media, which dramatically reduce chemical waste and reaction times. This chapter summarizes recent developments in this area.
