En route to metal-mediated and metal-catalysed reactions in water

Author affiliations

Abstract

This perspective report presents the key approaches for the development of various organometallic reactions in aqueous media. In view of future sustainability, the efficient use of natural resources, such as renewable biomass-based feedstocks, constitutes an important aspect for sustainable chemical industry. The exploration and discovery of efficient organometallic reactions or equivalents in water enrich the toolbox of organic chemists for the direct conversion of biomass-derived feedstocks into high-valued chemicals and the direct modification of biomolecules in their native aqueous environment, which contributes to future sustainability.
