Using microwave irradiation as an enabling tool
for preparative chemistry and the education of the chemists of tomorrow

The image, constructed by Rich Davis (CEM Microwave Technology) for a Tetrahedron Symposium In Print, is a collage bringing together some concepts of microwave-promoted synthesis. Microwaves, like all electromagnetic radiation, travel at the speed of light. They are of relatively low energy and cannot break chemical bonds. They cause heating on a molecular level and can accelerate reactions, leading to a significant time saving and often improving product yields.
