New pathways for nickel chemistry (Nature)

By: Tien Nguyen, Department of Chemistry Using a light-activated catalyst, researchers have unlocked a new pathway in nickel chemistry to construct carbon-oxygen (C-O) bonds that would be highly valuable to pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries. “It was extraordinary to see the reaction go from zero to 91 percent yield just by adding a photocatalyst and switching … Continue reading New pathways for nickel chemistry (Nature)
