Scientists formulate catalyst for converting unreactive bonds

05/6/2013 | Chemical & Engineering News

Harvard University chemists have developed a catalyst that transforms C–H bonds into reactive C–N bonds, improving access to certain molecules. "All we did was look at the design principle that makes the natural system so effective and try to mimic it. In doing so, I think we made something that might be even more reactive than what you find in nature," said Theodore Betley, one of the chemists who developed the process.
