Colleagues are heaping praise on Daniel J. Mindiola, associate professor of chemistry at Indiana University, Bloomington. His accomplishments include the development of highly reactive, low-coordinate complexes containing metal-ligand multiple bonds induced by α-hydrogen abstraction, including those of the type M=CHR and M≡CR that readily open the C–N bond in N-heterocycles.
Mindiola discovered a route to low-coordinate multiple-bond chemistry that enables the routine use of the inexpensive and versatile metals titanium, vanadium, and niobium in group-transfer . . .
