'Radical' new approach to connecting carbon atoms

(Princeton University) Researchers at Princeton University designed an innovative reaction that forms valuable carbon-carbon bonds from simple starting materials. Using an under-explored technique in organic synthesis called PCET, the reaction opens up a novel pathway for reactivity.
