Amphiphilic Acceleration: Disproportionation reactions of aromatic alcohols are accelerated significantly in water. The main reason is that the reactants are amphiphilic and can emulsify the reactant/water systems at the reaction conditions. The reactant molecules at the water/reactant droplet interface orientate themselves in a regular fashion, which improves the contact probability of the reactive groups and Pd catalysts.
