A molecular assembly of a hydrophobized metallophthalocyanine derivative embedded in a cerasome, an organic–inorganic hybrid vesicle with a lipid bilayer and silica surface, was a potent catalyst for aerobic oxidation of thioglycol. The catalytic activity was higher than those in hexadecyl 2-hydroxy-3-chloropropyl phosphate vesicles, sodium dodecylsulfate micelles, ethanol, and benzene.
