A major aim for the chemical technology of the future is the avoidance of noxious and environmentally unacceptable organic solvents. In this concept article we discuss more environmentally friendly and highly selective alternatives which we have evolved for carrying out a number of important chemical conversions. These entail the use of porous heterogeneous catalysts in which the active sites have been atomically engineered and fully characterized. Such solid catalysts operate under solvent-free conditions and usually entail one-step processes.
