Cross metathesis cleaves and restitches single bonds
Chemists have developed an array of chemical tools that rely on reactive carbon-carbon π bonds or on polar bonds in which charge is unevenly shared between the atoms to drive the formation of new carbon-carbon bonds. Yet methods that act on challenging, nonpolar carbon-carbon bonds are few. Researchers led by Masahiro Murakami of Kyoto University have expanded the synthetic options by demonstrating the efficient exchange of two low-polarity σ bonds in . . .
