No organic solvents are required using this novel concept for the heterogenization of (catalytic) reactions. The method relies on a multiphase transport process, namely on the transport of emulsified hydrophobic substrates to a hydrophobically derivatized sol-gel entrapped catalyst (see figure; S = substrate), and the transport of the resulting emulsified product from the catalyst-entrapping environment back into the aqueous bulk.
