Abstract: Owing to present environmental awareness, attempts are being made toward the evolution of environmentally benign processes using solid-supported reagents and microwave-assisted reactions. A newly developed, nonmetallic oxidative reagent, "clayan", has been exploited for various reactions such as deprotection, oxidation, oxidative coupling, and nitration and bromination of activated and deactivated arenes. In another green chemistry endeavor, reactions such as reduction and cyclization have been successfully carried out in dry media under microwave irradiation. The nonsolvent reaction, experimental simplicity, and enhanced selectivity are the main attractive features of the approach.
