Microwave heating has received considerable attention as a powerful synthetic tool for metal complexes in many fields of inorganic chemistry and material science. Since the 1990s, numerous metal complexes have been synthesized using the microwave technique. However, only a few studies have discussed such synthesis. In this review, we focus on microwave-assisted synthesis of metal complexes. We discuss the background to microwave chemistry in metal complex synthesis, the use of domestic microwave ovens for both closed- and open-system reactions, and some useful microwave heating techniques. In addition, we present a summary of reaction schemes from selected publications published in the past two decades.

Keywords: Coordination compound, metal complex, microwave heating, organometallic compound, synthesis, transition metal, superheating effect
