Progress in Reaction Kinetics and Mechanism publishes quarterly Reviews and Research papers. In the latest issue, a group from University of Vigo at Ourense, Spain discuss a new challenge in organic reactivity – the alkaline fading of triarylmethyl carbocations in self-assembly microheterogeneous media.

This review reports on the alkaline fading of crystal violet and other related carbocations in the presence of different microheterogeneous media (micelles,
microemulsions and vesicles). While the biomimetic systems, assembled like natural colloids, are one of the fields in which the physical organic chemistry has
focused in recent years, it also represents one of the new challenges in organic reactivity.
