The third edition of the bestselling two-volume reference covers everything you need to know about microwave technology for synthesis -- from the best equipment to nonthermal effects, from solid-support reactions to catalysis. Completely revised and updated with half of the authors completely new to the project, this comprehensive work is clearly divided into four parts on the fundamentals, methodology, combination of enabling technologies, and applications. Also new to this edition are chapters on on-line monitoring, flow chemistry, combination with ultrasounds and natural products, including multicomponent reactions. An indispensable source for organic, catalytic, physical, and medicinal chemists.
Professor Andr? Loupy was Directeur de la Recherche 1? Classe at the Institut de Chimie Mol?culaire et des Mat?riaux d'Orsay and is now retired. He is author of more than hundred publications and has edited three books. In 1998, he received the M. J. Collins Award for Excellence in Microwave Chemistry.
Antonio de la Hoz is Professor in Organic Chemistry in the University of Castilla-La Mancha since 2000. He obtained his Ph. D. degree from the Universidad Complutense in Madrid in 1986 under the supervision of Prof. J. Elguero and C. Pardo. After postdoctoral research in 1987 with Prof. M. Begtrup at the Danmarks Tekniske H?skole he joined the Faculty of Chemistry of the Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha in Ciudad Real in 1988. In 1993 he worked under the supervision Prof. A. Loupy in the Universit? de Paris-Sud in Microwave Assisted Organic Chemistry. Prof. de la Hoz has authored over 160 scientific publications 100 of them related to Microwaves in Organic Synthesis.
