Gaseous reagents that exhibit high compressibility at reaction temperatures and dissolve in conventional liquid phases at moderate pressures offer the opportunity to pressure-tune properties of the “gas-expanded liquid phase”.  This talk will demonstrate how such tunability may be exploited in catalysis to develop selective and intensified processes with improved sustainability.
