An overview of the tools available to speed up and enhance the organic chemistry workflow from synthesis to isolation. Microwave-assisted synthesis can make some organic reactions faster and more efficient. The basic theory of microwave-assisted synthesis and two examples are described. The next steps after synthesis is separation and isolation. The use of supported ligands for catalyst removal and high performance flash chromatography is described.
