Chemists are learning more about the pathways molecules take in chemical reactions, which could help them better control the outcomes, according to University of California at Davis chemistry professor Dean Tantillo. "[I]f chemists can study more reactions and learn more about the rules at play, they can apply their knowledge to produce new molecules more efficiently in the laboratory and to harness the complex chemistry catalyzed in nature," he writes.
