A paper by Jesús Campos on catalytic C-B coupling using a bora-Negishi methodology has been designated a ‘hot paper’ by the editors of Angewandte Chemie.


This paper is one of three in diverse areas of chemistry which have been accepted for publication in September by J. Am. Chem. Soc. and Angewandte Chemie. These also include work by Zhenbo Mo on reversible small molecule capture/activation by frustrated Lewis pairs, and a collaborative study with the group of Jose Goicoechea on E-H activation at phosphorus.
