Microwave synthesis, also known as microwave-assisted synthesis, is a technique used in chemistry to accelerate and enhance the process of chemical reactions using microwave radiation. It involves the application of microwave energy to heat reaction mixtures, promoting faster and more efficient reactions compared to traditional heating methods.

The benefits of microwave synthesis include improved reaction yields, increased product purity, and the ability to perform reactions that may be challenging or inefficient using conventional methods. The technique is particularly useful for organic synthesis, medicinal chemistry, materials science, and nanotechnology applications.
