Answer to Question #4833 in Organic Chemistry for Roshan Shaw

Question #4833
Why are some organic reactions accelerated at the water-organic interface?
Expert's answer
An alternative classification with broader scope is suggested by Yujiro Hayashi
as he describes certain organocatalytic Aldol reactions as taking place in the
presence of water.Observed rate-acceleration in presence of water is in fact due
to water suppressing reaction deactivation or or the cause of the limited
solubility of the reaction product in an organic solvent, when the product goes
into another phase of the mixture of solvents, the reaction rate between the
products is increasing
