An ecofriendly, economic, easy and greener chemical pathway used to prepare pharmaceutically important substituted flavones on oxidative cyclization of substituted chalcones by microwave irradiation in DMSO/I2 media. Microwave synthesis offers advantages over conventional heating by time, extent of chemicals used and by yield. Flavones synthesized are analyzed by spectra.
