A Marriage Of Catalysts
By combining photoredox catalysis with nickel catalysis, chemists have managed to broaden the scope of cross-coupling reactions. The new method, developed independently by two different research teams, will allow molecule makers to readily form carbon-carbon bonds that were tough to forge with previously developed cross-coupling reactions.
Cross-coupling reactions have been transformational in their ability to construct carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bonds, notes the University of Pennsylvania’s Gary A. Molander, one of the researchers who . . .
