Editorial Reviews

Sixteen contributions provide a broad perspective on the field of microwaves as a chemical laboratory technique. Topics include microwave-assisted sample preparation, its fundamentals and techniques, and its use in many fields of chemistry such as the synthesis of organic, organometallic, and inorganic compounds and catalysts. Also addressed are safety issues. Intended for professional chemists and for international reference. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
