Organic transformations associated with metal mediated electron transfer processes are really worthy of remarkable considering the biological importance of redox active metal ions, such as Cu(III) and Fe(III). Electron transfer reactions directed by those metal ions, offer numerous oxidative transformations, have significant interest to the researchers in order to correlate with biological systems as well as to understand the kinetics and mechanistic pathways of those studied reactions. This review aims to recapitulate the considerable development of Cu(III) and Fe(III) mediated redox transformations. As biological systems are associated with water therefore thorough exploration on the electron transfer reactions by two redox couples in aqueous medium has been getting much importance over simple redox chemistry in organic media. So, by replacing organic solvent with environmentally benign water media, aqueous surfactant solution appeared as the best substitute. It is known to all that ‘micellar catalysis’ is a legendary term recognized for its practical application in several organic transformations that are really difficult to perform in water without exploiting surfactant. This review emphasizes also the significance of surfactant-micelle media on the Cu(III) and Fe(III) metal ions directed oxidative transformations along with a focus on the exclusive catalytic track and significant contributory interaction accounted for in the course of rate enhancement. Despite the detailing about the current progress and developing prospects of micellar media on such organic transformations this review would be helpful to the researchers working in this field to generate some thoughtful ideas.
