Organic Synthesis in Water

Using water as a medium for selling natural reactions has been fairly overlooked within the improvement of natural synthesis, even though it's the solvent during which just about all biochemical methods ensue. Chemists have just recently began to take pleasure in the large strength water has to provide within the improvement of recent man made reactions and techniques, the place it may supply advantages, in either distinct chemistry and decreased environmental impression.
