The use of microwave-assisted extraction has gained wide acceptance as a powerful tool for the recovery of environmental contaminants and their subsequent analysis. This paper reviews the historical and fundamental basis of the technology. It also provides a cursory review of the current state-of-the-art and literature (2000�2006) in the area of environmental analysis in addition to providing a critical review of the level of efforts being devoted to its further development.
