Pickeringed, not stirred: A general strategy to carry out organic/aqueous reactions involving solid catalysts without stirring is developed. The strategy is based on converting a conventional biphasic system into one Pickering emulsion phase. The reaction efficiency is comparable to that of conventional stirrer-driven biphasic catalysis reactions. The high reaction efficiency originates from the micrometer-scale mixing and the thereby shortened diffusion distances of the reactant molecules.
