The novel materials, polyHIPEs with incorporated tetrasubstituted ammonium cationic surfactant (CTAB) have been applied to a broad range of radical precursors in various free radical transformations in organic and aqueous media. The advantage of this reagent/ solid phase surfactant combination lies in its affordability, miniscule toxicity, avoidance of highly toxic “tin based hydrogen donors” under green reaction conditions.

Keywords: Free Radicals, PolyHIPEs as reaction media, synthesis, green chemistry
