Organic Reducing Agent Sets New Record
Organic electron donors with exceptionally negative redox potentials have emerged as new reagents in organic synthesis to complement traditional metal-based reducing agents. Chemists led by John A. Murphy of the University of Strathclyde, in Scotland, and C. Adam Dyker of the University of New Brunswick, in Canada, have pushed this class of compounds to a new level by designing and synthesizing a substituted bispyridinylidene that is the . . .
