Abstract: Low molecular weight liquid poly(ethylene glycol)s (PEG) as a novel green solvent for organic reactions have been attracting great attention. They are thermally stable, nonvolatile, nonflammable, non-toxic, biodegradable, inexpensive and recyclable. Moreover, they can dissolve a great range of organic compounds and organometallic complexes. Thus, liquid PEG as an alternative to organic solvent and a new approach for immobilization of homogeneous catalyst has been successfully employed in a number of organic reactions, such as reduction reaction, hydrogenation, oxidation reaction, asymmetric dihydroxylation, Heck reaction, Suzuki cross-coupling reaction, Michael addition reaction, asymmetric aldol reaction, Baylis-Hillman reaction, lipase-catalyzed reaction, polymerization reaction and so on. This paper reviews the advances in this research field.
