From preceding three decades, solvent-free microwave assisted reactions are being concerned. This technique eliminates waste, avoid the use of toxic solvents and serve a flexible platform for chemical reactions. In this review, our aim is to corroborate recent data available on solvent-free microwave assisted condensation reactions.
