  • Catalyst adds fluorine-containing groups to make new compounds

    Drugs that contain one or more fluorine atoms tend to be more stable, more powerful, and easier for the body to absorb. For those reasons, drug developers would like to be able to incorporate fluorine or a fluorine-containing unit known as trifluoromethyl into new experimental drugs, but this has be more

  • E-selective macrocyclic ring-closing metathesis

    Using ring-closing metathesis to exploit the properties of carbon-carbon double bonds, researchers from Boston College and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed a new catalytic approach for the preparation of compounds essential to drug discovery. The catalyst, which contains the more

  • Bringing artificial enzymes closer to nature

    Scientists at the University of Basel, ETH Zurich in Basel, and NCCR Molecular Systems Engineering have developed an artificial metalloenzyme that catalyses a reaction inside of cells without equivalent in nature. This could be a prime example for creating new non-natural metabolic pathways inside l more

Olefin metathesis

Olefin metathesis Olefin metathesis or transalkylidenation (in some literature, a disproportionation ) is an organic reaction which involves redistribution of olefin ic (alkene ) bonds . The reaction is catalyzed by metals such as nickel , tu ... more
