Lanthanide extraction isolates valuable chitin derivative
A team of chemists has reported a practical approach to isolating Chromogen I, an elusive but potentially high-value compound that can be derived from waste biomass such as shrimp shells (Inorg. Chem. 2016, DOI: 10.1021/acs.inorgchem.6b02589). Chromogen I is a derivative of N-acetyl-
