The carbon-chalcogen bond formation is of much importance as organochalcogenides scaffold, and in general, it shows by organochalcogenide scaffolds, in general, show promising biological activities and many compounds containing chalcogenide units are currently used as drugs, agrochemicals and useful materials. Thus, a plethora of methods has been developed for the formation of carbonchalcogen bonds. This review covers the recent developments on the formation of carbon-chalcogen bonds under microwave irradiation and synthesis of useful chalcogenides by employing this process.
