ORGANIC SYNTHESIS IN WATER.

Abstract(RBIP-246)

Water is the universal solvent in which the chemistry of the life processes has developed over billions of years. Its unique chemical and physical properties have fascinated scientists for a long time. In sharp contrast to the general academic interest in water, the modern chemist rarely uses or even considers water as a medium for synthetic organic reactions. The use of water was reevaluated when it was found that the rate and selectivity of the important and useful Diels-Alder reaction could be greatly enhanced in water compared to the same reaction in an organic solvent. The interest in water as solvent was further invigorated with the introduction of the concept of “green” chemistry, which addresses the environmental impact of chemicals and chemical processes. This article highlights some important developments in the field of green chemistry: the discovery of metal-based catalysts that operate in water, synthesis of flavanone, 2-aminothiazoles, quinoxolin and major application in aqueous microwave- assisted organic synthesis. In view of the potential reward of replacing hazardous organic solvents with water, researchers must took up the academic challenge of developing new synthetic methods that were compatible with the aqueous medium.

Keywords: Diels-alder reaction, Microwave, Aminothiazoles, Green chemistry.
