Micelles as a reaction environment
Alkyl chlorides are attractive starting materials in chemical synthesis, as they are bulk commodity chemicals, cheap and very stable. Despite the developments in photocatalysis, the activation of stable alkyl chlorides is currently rather challenging. Chemists at the University of Regensburg have now developed a method that allows the photochemical activation of alkyl chlorides in micellar solutions.

Learn more about the topic in the article by Dr. Maciej Giedyk und Prof. Dr. Burkhard König, Universität Regensburg, Institut für Organische Chemie, Germany, on the q&more portal.
