Abstract

A switchable catalyst based on temperature change provides a novel solid-phase reaction system in water. An increase in catalyst affinity for organic substrates at higher temperature led to efficient activity driving the solid inner-phase reaction, and loss of affinity at lower temperature allowed easy separation of organic products upon completion of the reaction. Application of this catalyst intelligence to design a novel catalytic system brought about an efficient oxidative cyclization with hydrogen peroxide, a useful method of accessing oxygen heterocycles.
