Palladium is the undisputed champion when it comes to catalyst metals, enabling chemists to carry out a versatile array of cross-coupling reactions. Bruce H. Lipshutz and his group at the University of California, Santa Barbara, have a goal to take this versatility further by seeing how green and efficient they can make palladium catalysis.

In their latest endeavor, the Lipshutz group and its collaborators . . .
