  • Photoreactors For All

    I’ve been hearing about this for a while now, so I’m glad to link to the manuscript (open access, now with a working link!) on a new photoreactor t… Read More
  • Couple Your Primary Amines

    Here’s another neat carbon-carbon bond forming reaction (and no, we organic chemists just cannot get enough of these things). It’s from Mary Watson… Read More
  • The Chan-Lam Reaction, Tamed At Last

    Many synthetic organic chemists will be familiar with the Chan-Lam reaction, where an organoboronic acid or ester is reacted with an amine in the presence of a… Read More
  • Macrocycles For the Making

    I meant to write about this paper at the time, but there’s no harm in highlighting it now. A group at the University of Toronto reports a neat way to make… Read More
  • New Looks At Two Classic Reactions

    It’s hard to imagine a functional group that’s been more heavily studied than amides. They are, of course, the literal backbone of protein chemistry… Read More
  • George Olah, 1927-2017

    George Olah, 1994 Nobelist in chemistry, has passed away. Yet another of the extremely distinguished list of Hungarian-born scientists of the 20th century, Olah… Read More
  • Modifying Natural Products, And How

    The field of late-stage modification of complex structures has seen several advances in the last few years, and this is just the sort of thing that medicinal ch… Read More
  • Triangulene, By Force

    The molecule on the right is triangulene, and it’s an odd one. You’d think at first that you could fill everything in with alternating double bonds… Read More
