Catalyst Promotes Acyl Transfer Three Ways
Computation and experiment have been used to design a catalytic process with a three-part mechanism that makes a metal-promoted acyl transfer reaction occur 108 times faster than the uncatalyzed reaction. Nicholas J. Mosey, R. Stan Brown, and coworkers at Queen’s University, in Kingston, Ontario, developed the unusual catalyst, a palladacycle, to promote the methanolysis of a thioamide (J. Am. Chem.
