Low melting carbohydrate mixtures and aqueous carbohydrates – an effective green medium for organic synthesis
Low melting mixtures comprising of carbohydrates/urea or inorganic salts as new unconventional renewable solvents for organic transformations. These are stable, environmentally begin and easily biodegradable. Moreover, the properties include nontoxic, highly polar and contains low vapour pressure. In this review, we summarize the recent developments and their usefulness in organic synthesis, yet this is the extensive fast rising field and the most important examples in the past two decades have been taken into the account for the discussion.
