Supercritical tuning: The outstanding characteristic of water as a reaction medium is the possibility of tuning its properties by changing the temperature and pressure. In combination with small amounts of sulfuric acid, even the most resistant compounds show significant conversion within seconds. The kinetics of the hydrolysis of valeronitrile are investigated under supercritical conditions, which results in remarkable yields of valeric acid.
