Ed and Vuk’s paper on the accelerating effect of HFIP solvent on nucleophilic ring-opening of donor-acceptor cyclopropanes has been published in Organic Letters. Congrats!
Our paper on the chemical origins of life is published in Nature Ecology & Evolution. We show that more than half of the reverse Krebs cycle can occur without enzymes. Congrats to Kamila, Sreejith, Elodie, Lucas and Guang for an amazing team effort! A free link to the paper is here. The journal’s paywall version is here.

Our invited Synpacts article in Synlett has been chosen as the cover for the December 1st issue. Yay!
Our first paper from our collaboration with the Ebbesen group describing how strong coupling to the vacuum field can be exploited to change the rate of chemical reactions has been accepted for publication in Angewandte Chemie. Congrats to all who participated from the Ebbesen group and to Marian and Sreejith from our group!
Our collaboration with the Samori group on liquid-phase exfoliation of graphite to yield graphene is published in The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters.
