Phase-Transfer Catalyst Market Overview


The phase catalyst is a type of catalyst that helps the migration of the reactant from one place to other. It is heterogeneous catalysis that helps in the replacement. The catalyst is also used in the solid or liquid and liquid or gas reaction as it acts as a detergent for solubilizing salt into organic form. The catalyst helps the reaction get to the result faster to get the high conversions or yields. The catalyst eliminates the waste issues and lessens the need for expensive raw materials. The phase transfer is mostly used in green chemistry. The increasing use of the Phase-Transfer Catalyst in the pharmaceutical industry drives market growth.

The Phase-Transfer Catalyst Market is expected to reach USD 1,321 million by 2023 and will hold a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period. The adaptation of eco-friendly and green chemistry in organic synthesis drives market growth.

The catalyst can reduce the byproducts and expand the yielding. Many people use green chemistry due to several advantages it provides to the environment, such as offering high yields, requiring small stocks and reducing waste. In addition to it, it also saves a lot of water and energy. The release of harmful chemicals can be reduced by green chemistry. The green chemicals are environment-friendly and do not cause any harm to the ozone layer. As they accelerate the reaction for the formation of the chemical derivatives, it is used in the synthesis, formulation and different laboratory usage.

Recent Market Developments 



January 2022: The University of Groningen in the Netherlands solved the problem of assymetric metal catalysed C-P bond formation by using an axially chiral 1,1'–bi–2–naphthol (BINOL)–based phosphoramidite (also known as Feringas ligand) and aryl halides or triflates as starting materials, according to a study published in Nature Catalysis. This accomplishment is due to the presence of BINOL, which exerts control over the production of a single isomer via a mechanism called axial-central chirality transfer. Additionally, this work is unusual in that it identifies a hitherto uncharacterized P-chiral phosphonium salt intermediate that can be seen via X-ray crystallography following the arylation phase. According to the authors, this novel phosphonium salt with chirality in the P-center has the potential to pave the way for new applications as a chiral phase transfer catalyst or as a starting material for a variety of additional P-chiral compounds.
