This technology offers new approaches for initiating phase transfer reactions using an external magnetic field. This invention enables development of new composite materials by using magnetically assisted trans-phase reagent delivery and also allows magnetically triggered reaction initiation or catalysis (e.g. polymerisation, condensation, etc.) at aqueous/organic interfaces.
Traditional phase-transfer reactions and catalysis are currently used in various industrial applications and research fields, including the production of: surfactants,polymers,adhesives,sealants,dyes,pharmaceuticals, nanomaterials,flavours and fragrances
