A Perspective on Catalysis in the Immiscible Liquid-Liquid System

Keywords: Immiscible liquid-liquid system, Phase-transfer catalysis, Triphase catalysis, Phase-boundary catalysis

Abstract

This manuscript provides a perspective on research work related to the catalysis in the immiscible liquid-liquid system. Three catalytic concepts, i.e., phase-transfer catalysis (PTC), triphase catalysis (TPC), and phase-boundary catalysis (PBC), are presented as well as their use for the design of a better catalytic system. This perspective emphasizes based on the SWO (Strengths, Weaknesses, and Opportunities) analysis of PTC, TPC, and PBC and advances concept uses for future directions of research in this area.

The SWO (Strengths, Weaknesses, and Opportunities) analysis of phase-transfer catalysis (PTC), triphase catalysis (TPC), and phase-boundary catalysis (PBC) were utilized for the future directions of research on catalysis in the immiscible liquid-liquid system. Based on this analysis, it is possible to connect and translate them into the opportunity to get a better catalysis system with high conversion, high reaction rate, high selectivity, easy separation of product, stable catalyst, and reaction under static conditions.
