chemoselectivity

[‚kē·mō‚si·lek′tiv·əd·ē]
(organic chemistry)
The preferential reaction of a chemical reagent with one functional group in the presence of other similar functional groups; for example, a chemoselective reducing agent might reduce an aldehyde but not a ketone.

The influence of micro-waves on stereo selectivity, regioselectivity and chemoselectivity along with the enormous accelerations resulting in speedy molecular interactions causing higher yield and purity as well are attributes that cannot be overlooked without contemplation (Jayabharathe et al., 2015).
