Abstract

This review aims to highlight microwave-assisted organic synthesis as applied to medicinal chemistry in the last years, showing some reactions performed under microwave irradiation for the synthesis of distinct structurally molecules of biological interest, divided into the following groups: antineoplastics, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial agents, antivirals, agents for the treatment of neglected diseases and central nervous system-acting prototypes.
Keywords: microwave irradiation; medicinal chemistry; bioactive compounds; drug discovery microwave irradiation; medicinal chemistry; bioactive compounds; drug discovery
