Streamlining Tetrazine Synthesis
Facile synthesis of promising tetrazine biochemical probes could be a big step forward for researchers who examine biochemistry as it happens in cells and live animals (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., DOI: 10.1002/anie.201201117). The advance, utilizing Lewis acid catalysts, might allow more researchers to make the probes in one pot from commercially available starting materials.
Thus far, the tetrazine labels, which feature nitrogen-rich rings, have . . .
