High art in synthetic chemistry

the 2010 Nobel Prize in chemistry. Part 2

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Part 2 of the 2010 Nobel Prize article looks at the contributions of Akira Suzuki and Ei-ichi Negishi. They turned Richard Heck's discovery into routine practice but they are not the only major contributors to making palladium-catalysed cross-coupling reactions an indispensable part of modern synthetic chemistry.
