Abstract

(Chemical Equation Presented) Water, the medium of choice: Many reactions, such as Claisen rearrangements (see scheme), are dramatically accelerated when performed in aqueous suspension ("on water") relative to organic (Table Presented) solvents or even neat conditions. Low miscibility of organic compounds with water is not detrimental: in fact, it facilitates the isolation of products.
