Testing the waters: An architecture-based system for transition-metal catalysis consisting of a self-assembled amphiphilic pincer palladium complex bearing hydrophilic and hydrophobic chains has been developed. Self-assembly of the bilayer vesicles of the complex, concentration of the organic substrates within the hydrophobic region of the bilayer membrane, and catalytic transformation of the substrate all occur sequentially in water (see scheme).
