Chemists at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena have demonstrated the value of ‘teamwork’ by successfully harnessing the interaction between two gallium atoms in a novel compound to split the particularly strong bond between fluorine and carbon. The gallium compound is also cheaper and more environmentally friendly than conventional alternatives.
Sustainable and inexpensive
“Such reactions are usually carried out using transition metals, such as nickel or iridium,” explains Prof. Robert Kretschmer,…
