National University of Singapore chemists have developed a photo-induced method for late-stage functionalization of carbon-hydrogen (C-H) bonds in organic molecules.
The replacement of H in C-H bonds with other atoms or substituents is one of the most coveted ways to create new and useful molecules. While the C-H bond can be found in almost all organic molecules, it is typically inactive and therefore difficult to functionalise. Direct transformation of C-H bonds to versatile alkene functional …
