Prof. C. O. Kappe has co-authored ca. 400 scientific publications since 1988 in a variety of different fields, including review articles, books and book chapters. For an overview of publications and citations, see: Publications/Citations from ResearchID.com. His current Web Of Science H-Index is 73 (August 2018).
He is most well-known for his work in the field of microwave chemistry and his laboratory has authored over 150 original research articles, reviews and books on microwave-assisted synthesis since 1999. He has contributed chapters to most of the available reference books on the subject and has published numerous other review and feature articles on microwave synthesis. Most notably among those is a 2004 review in Angewandte Chemie, which has been voted best review article in this journal and is currently (year 2017) the most cited review in microwave Synthesis (ca. 2750 citations). The comprehensive books "Microwaves in Organic and Medicinal Chemistry" and "Practical Microwave Synthesis for Organic Chemists - Strategies, Instruments, and Protocols" were published with Wiley-VCH in 2005 (2nd ed. 2012) and 2009, respectively and are currently considered the standard reference books in the field.
Recent publications (~100) focus on continuous flow chemistry, the use of microreactors in organic chemistry and process intensification.
The work of the research team in Graz has also been highlighted in articles published in Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN, December 13, 2004 Issue; C&EN, October 12, 2009 Issue; and C&EN, September 24, 2012 Issue), Nature Magazine (Nature 2003, 421, 571-572; and Nature 2009, 461, 701) and in Chemistry World (Chemistry World 2008, 5, Issue 10, Chemistry World 2009, 6, Issue 11, Chemistry World 2013, June 19, Chemistry World 2013, July 22, Chemistry World 2013, October 22.
