Abstract: Microwave-assisted organic synthesis in near-critical water (NCW) in the 270-300 oC temperature range has been investigated in a dedicated multimode microwave reactor utilizing heavy-walled quartz reaction vessels.

Several different known transformations such as the hydrolysis of esters or amides, the hydration of alkynes, Diels-Alder cycloadditions, pinacol rearrangements, and the Fischer indole synthesis were successfully performed in microwave-generated NCW without the addition of an acid or base catalyst.
