We are excited that our latest paper Scalable, Electrochemical Oxidation of Unactivated CH Bonds was published in JACS earlier today! This reaction enables the oxidation of a simple unactivated methylene to a ketone. Although one may think that this reaction...
Our latest publication in decarboxylative cross-coupling of redox-active esters was published earlier today.  We will let you check out the publication and the SI (>450 comprehensive pages) for the details of our decarboxylative alkenylation, so this...
Our recent work on decarboxylative borylation was published in Sciencetoday! Since Sciences new online research article format has allowed us to include many details in the paper as well as the supplementary information, I will avoid repeating what has been...

     Today our work on the total synthesis of the araiosamines is out in JACS. While the chemistry (success and unexpected failures) was detailed in the paper and SI, I would like to share some stories from the science behind the construction...
We are delighted to announce that our recent work on Fe-catalyzed cross-couplings of redox-active esters (RAEs) has recently been published in JACS! We'd like to share with you how we started out, developed this project, and how things evolved from the...
Hello! I worked on this rather atypical paper and am here to tell you a little about how it progressed on the ground. As always, how the paper looks when its finished shares little resemblance to the journey. This is our only molecule that has its own youtube...
