Liquid multiphasic systems, where one of the phases is catalyst-philic, are attractive for organic transformation, as they provide built-in methods of catalyst separation and product recovery, as well as advantages of catalytic efficiency. The present chapter focuses on recent developments of catalyst-philic phases used in conjunction with heterogeneous catalysts. Interest in this field is fueled by the desire to combine the high catalytic efficiency typical of homogeneous catalysis with the easy product-catalyst separation features provided by heterogeneous catalysis and in situ phase separations.

Global warming is a huge problem which will significantly affect every country in the world. Many people all over the world are trying to do whatever they can to help combat the effects of global warming. One of the ways that people can fight global warming is to reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy sources like oil and petroleum based products.
