Some examples have been reported on the use of organocatalysts in water which is an important approach to the principles of green chemistry [5].The aldol reaction is one of the mostimportant carbon-carbon bond forming reactions in modern organic synthesis as a key step in natural product synthesis and for the rapid access to polyoxygenated compounds.
The thermoresponsive polymer in water aggregate to form a rather hydrophobic reaction field and the substrates are probably concentrated and promoted the aldol reaction in the resulting hydrophobic field.
