Well written except for one paragraph
This seems to me a well-written and clear short article, with a very good example in the first section. However I find the second section more confusing, especially the first paragraph "In the PTC process, the same concept applies, that of transporting ionic species from one phase to another. The difference lies in the fact that with PTC, a chemical reaction is promoted and nothing is “isolated” or “purified" during the reaction process. Instead, PTC promotes organic synthesis reactions by transferring mutually insoluble reactants into a common phase."
Are there really two different types of process being compared here? I would have thought that PT catalysis is just a reaction using a PT catalyst as defined in the previous section. Can someone explain this "difference" more clearly? If not, perhaps this paragraph should be deleted. Other opinions please? Dirac66 (talk) 02:27, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
