Abstract: This presentation reports the possibility to carry out simple solid phase coupling reactions not only by conventional thermal heating but also by microwave dielectric heating. Thus coupling of benzoic acid to Wang resin occurs under microwave irradiation within 3 h in excellent yield (>99%) as compared to 72 h at room temperature. However, a further increase of reaction rates in this particular coupling reaction is not possible due to a side reaction that occurs at higher temperatures.
