'Parachuting' boron on benzene rings

A bulky catalyst induces pinpoint targeting on benzene to create bioactive molecules

16-Apr-2015

Tuning the para position of benzene moieties is significant for creating biologically active compounds and optoelectronic materials. Yet, attaching a functional handle specifically at the para position of benzene has been challenging due to multiple reactive sites on the ring. Chemists at ITbM, ...
