FRND - Sticks And Stones
Since Friedrich Wohler synthesized urea by accident back in , chemical synthesis — and organic synthesis for that — has been a driving force in pharmaceutical innovation. Improving the lives of people worldwide, the medicines available nowadays are only possible thanks to the continuous advancement of synthetic chemistry, allowing scientists to design and build new molecules. Now, Marcos G. In a paper published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society , the Suero research team presents a new reaction able to edit the skeletons of organic molecules by breaking strong C-C double bonds and inserting a carbon atom through a catalytic process. The catalytic generation of Rh-carbynoids represents a new platform for carbyne transfer that enables skeletal remodelling, and circumvents a long-standing challenge in the catalytic generation of metal-carbynes. Aside from inserting a new monovalent carbon atom, the reaction also introduces extra complexity in the molecule: a single C-C bond and a double C-C bond are created together with a chiral center at one of the C atoms with the cleaved double bond. The skeletal editing will allow building complex architectures, thus expanding the synthetic possibilities of creating new materials or medicines.

Remember that rhyme. The mantra of many childhoods, wheeled out to protect youthful fragility. Is there really no physical cost to name calling, jeering and verbal abuse? At the start of September, I started to think about the cost of street harassment jeering, heckling and the like. Whilst out running on my own University campus I was subjected to three different instances of harassment during a minute run. This was, for the most part catcalling and jeering, though one instance was more threatening.
