Because we are in the process of moving from San Diego to Boston and because my computer is in a truck trailer somewhere in the middle of the country, I'm doing something a little different in lieu of The Art of Basic Science this month. I realized I've been remiss in posting actual client work so I'm going to post something every day for a week to share some of the projects I've been doing over the past few months.
This is another cover I did for the Mankad Lab at University of Illinois at Chicago, highlighting the power of bimetallic systems in selectivity. Here it is used to favor one transformation over another. You can read more about it here:
Fundamental organometallic chemistry under bimetallic influence: driving β-hydride elimination and diverting migratory insertion at Cu and Ni.
Dalton Trans. 2017 May 2;46(17):5518-5521. doi: 10.1039/c6dt04533b
The Art of Basic Science will return in July, and I'm feeling particularly inspired after I finally made it to LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) the day before I left California.
