Abstract:  In recent years, mechanochemistry has repeatedly demonstrated to outperform solution-based protocols in aspects such as efficiency and sustainability. More attractive, however, is the premise that mechanochemical activation holds potential for unmasking chemical reactivity and to alter product composition of classical chemical transformations. Such features have been recognized of paramount importance in academic circles, and are expected to be transferable and useful in industry.

In this presentation, the use of mechanical forces to activate chemical systems will be discussed. Examples including mechanochemical metal-catalyzed reactions, prebiotic chemistry, and mechanoenzymatic transformations will clearly exemplify the advantages and remaining challenges in this area.
