Abstract: This paper describes various examples of organic reactions carried out in high-temperature water (HTW) that have been performed at the University of Nottingham using either batch-type reactors or continuous-flow systems. Homogeneously and heterogeneously catalyzed partial oxidations of aromatic compounds, in situ hydrogenations, heterocyclic reactions, hydrolysis (HYD), saponification (SAP), and deuteration reactions are presented.
