Reactivity in organised assemblies

Author affiliations


This report reviews the 2009 literature on reactivity in organised assemblies, with virtually all examples taken from literature covering aqueous systems. The report is broadly organised along the lines that we set out last year,1 but with the addition of a “miscellaneous” section containing two papers that we did not want to leave out of this report. Nevertheless, as always, we cannot and will not claim that this report provides an exhaustive review. Several main themes covered by this report were reviewed in 2009; Prins and Scrimin reviewed covalent capture which they defined as relying on “the combined use of covalent and noncovalent synthesis by taking advantage of their complementarity”,2 Peyralans and Otto reviewed recent highlights in systems chemistry,3 metallomicellar catalysis was reviewed by Tecilla et al.4 and one of us reviewed kinetic medium effects on organic reactions in aqueous colloidal solutions.5
