Rule breaking Leads to Primary Alcohols …
By linking three processes in one pot, chemists have taken a step toward a greener alternative to hydroboration/oxidation, the classic two-step method for forming primary alcohols from alkenes (Science, DOI: 10.1126/science.1208685). Obtaining primary alcohols through hydroboration requires stoichiometric amounts of reagents. To find a catalytic alternative, Caltech’s Robert H. Grubbs, Guangbin Dong, Peili Teo, and . . .
