Special Issue "Phase Transfer Catalysis"
A special issue of Molecules (ISSN 1420-3049).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2012).
Interests: microwave-assisted synthesis; chitosan; organic synthesis; nanoparticles; luminescent materials; polymer and hybrid materials
In the last four decades, a great deal of organic reactions have been reported to be carried out under phase-transfer catalytic conditions (PTC). PTC has found applications in essentially all the fields of organic syntheses, industrial chemistry, biotechnology and material sciences. It can be encountered in the manufacture of advanced pharmaceuticals, pharmaceuticals, fragrances, crop protection chemicals, highly advanced engineering plastics, advanced materials for semiconductors and also electro-optical and data storage devices. It is intended that this special issue of "Molecules" will consider fundamentals of PTC, synthesis and modification organic compounds and polymers in the lab scale as well as industrial chemistry, biotechnology and material sciences. Previously unpublished experimental, theoretical, prospective, historical, and review papers are solicited on the following and related topics.
