… The understanding of chemical reactivity is of key importance for the development and optimization of key chemical processes in both the laboratory and industry. Solvation not only changes the properties of the reactants and the products, but also affects transition states. Solvents thus influence the thermodynamics, the kinetics, and the product selectivity in liquid phase reactions. The selection of a suitable solvent frequently determines the success or failure of a chemical reaction. One example with possibly broad implications is the synthesis of enantiomeric pure products that is mandatory for any new…
