Designer Surfactant For Micellar Catalysis

A novel amphiphilic molecule provides a promising platform for carrying out greener ring-closing metathesis reactions in water
Department: Science & Technology

A newly designed molecule that functions as a solvent and homogeneous catalyst rolled into one is a promising platform for carrying out greener ring-closing metathesis reactions in water, according to Bruce H. Lipshutz and Subir Ghorai of the University of California, Santa Barbara, who created the amphiphile (Org. Lett. 2009, 11, 705). Polyoxyethanyl ubiquinyl sebacate, or PQS, . . .
