Faculty Publication: Low strain, more gain

Yutan Getzler, Associate Professor of Chemistry, has published an article “Low strain, more gain” in Volume 13 Issue 8 of Nature Chemistry. Abstract Recycling polymers to their monomers would enable a circular polymer economy, but this can be challenging, especially for materials with all-carbon backbones. Now, by lowering the strain of cyclooctene through ring fusion,Continue reading “Faculty Publication: Low strain, more gain”
