Chemists break record for longest C–C bond
The single carbon-carbon bond is among the most familiar covalent connections in organic compounds. But a new study suggests that chemists have yet to fully explore the limits of this basic bond.
Scientists have previously found that these ubiquitous bonds, which typically measure about 1.54 Å in length, can be elongated through the use of bulky substituents to endow molecules with special properties. Now, researchers led by Takanori Suzuki and . . .
