Accelerated ageing reactions: towards simpler, solvent-free, low energy chemistry

Author affiliations

Abstract

We provide an overview of chemical transformations that proceed spontaneously, by mixing of initially solid reactants, and are accelerated and/or directed through gentle stimuli in the form of mild heating, exposure to diverse gas or vapour environments, brief mechanical milling, and/or the presence of catalysts. This broad overview illustrates how such accelerated ageing (AA) reactions could provide a route to develop operationally simple, as well as safe, inexpensive and materials- and energy-efficient processes for the environmentally-friendly synthesis of diverse organic and metal–organic materials and molecules.
