Brown University chemists have developed a new composite catalyst that can perform four separate reaction steps in sequential order in the same vessel, generating compounds that are useful as intermediates for making antibiotics, anticancer drugs, and other pharmaceuticals (J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2017, DOI: 10.1021/jacs.7b01983). Christopher T. Seto, Shouheng Sun, Chao Yu, and Xuefeng Guo set . . .
