Abstract

Different in water! We have developed Nazarov-type reactions in water. Different reaction courses compared with those in organic solvents are observed in water. In the presence of a scandium based, surfactant-type catalyst, water-trapping products are obtained exclusively. The results presented are unprecedented and provide a valuable extension to information available regarding organic reactions in water.
