Exploring the Performance of Nanostructured Reagents with Organic-Group-Defined Morphology in Cross-Coupling Reaction
Valentine Ananikov reports on the use of nanostructured reagents with organic-group-defined morphology.
During recent decades tight bonds have arisen between various fields of chemistry, physics and other natural sciences and have pushed forward complex multidisciplinary approaches for solving many scientific problems. The group of Professor Valentine P. Ananikov at the Russian Academy of Sciences (Russian Federation) has striven to extend the tools, methods and, in general, the paradigm of nano-science to the classical synthetic organic chemistry. Their main idea was to use nano-structured reagents for the synthesis of typical small organic molecules in order to reveal the possibility of tuning the reactant properties at micro- and nano-levels.
