In nature, many biological processes occur in aqueous environments, and these fascinating in vivo reactions should prompt organic chemists to explore the potential of water as a medium for organic reactions. In addition to scientific interest in aqueous reaction media, social pressure to find environmentally benign alternatives to current organic chemical processes has made these reactions attractive from an ecological point of view. The use of aqueous media in organic reactions offers… CONTINUE READING
