’On-water’ Synthesis of Hydroxytyrosol Fatty Esters

"On-water" reactions have been known for a long time, but it was not
before 2005 when Nobel Prize winner Berry Sharpless published a systematic
study on this phenomenon in 2005.
Herein is presented a two-step-one-pot reaction, combining the beneficial
effects of "on-water" processes with the well known advantages of
microwave heating.
