Abstract:

The origin and development of phase-transfer catalysis as a technique for the efficient conduct of organic reactions in two-phase media is described and the mechanism of the process is discussed. Some examples of its application to substitution, addition and elimination reactions, to oxidations, reductions and carbene chemistry are cited to illustrate the broad scope and general utility of the method.
