Aldol reactions catalyzed by L-proline functionalized polymeric nanoreactors in water

Author affiliations

Abstract

The use of functional core–shell micelles as asymmetric catalytic nanoreactors for organic reactions in water is presented. An unprecedented increase in rate of reaction was achieved, which is proposed to be associated with the ability of the nanostructures to effectively concentrate the reagents in the catalytically active micelle core.
