Polyethylene glycols (PEG) can dissolve a lot of organic compounds and metallic complexes. Moreover, they are thermally stable, nonvolatile, non-toxic, biodegradable, inexpensive and recyclable. Thus, PEG as green medium has been successfully employed in many organic reactions, such as carbon-carbon coupling reaction, carbon-hetero coupling reaction, multicomponent reaction, condensation reaction, addition reaction, substitution reaction, oxidation reaction, reductive reaction, and so on. The recent advances of PEG applied in orgainc synthesis are reviewed.

Key words: polyethylene glycol (PEG), green solvent, catalyst carrier, organic synthesis
