Latest piece for the RSC in the October issue of Chemistry Worldâ€¦
What, even more Platensimycin? What happened to Peribysin E?
Bloody Nora, how could you say that “a little oxidation with palladium gives the enone…”
What could be appreciated as a small detail such as performing an stoichiometric Saegusa oxidation in Pd(II) at the beginning of the synthesis is what could differentiate a good synthesis from a master-class piece.
Nobody have heard of the Kerr’s reagent (Akas Sweet-ginger reagent)?
who will win the nobel prize tomorrow?????
I see your biochemist and raise you a biologist
Committee is heavily biologically oriented so something I have heard about only tangentially will be honored.
2 minutes to go…this year the prize should go for a orgchem or supramolec chemistry…itÂ´s about time :Â´D
Tot.Syn should have won the Nobel Prize.
wisemanleo: we can but hope
