Within the last 10 years, there has been extensive research on "photoredox catalysts" that can be activated by visible light and enable highly specific and efficient chemical reactions
The appeal of developing improved drugs to promote helpful reactions or prevent harmful ones has driven organic chemists to better understand how to synthetically create these molecules and reactions in the laboratory
"The recent addition of the mini DrySyn OCTO kit has been advantageous as it allows us the flexibility to optimize our catalyst on a smaller scale"
Developing a method for discovering new chemical reactions
Scientists designed a quantum device that separates the catalyst from the starting chemicals
