Yichen’s paper published in Nature Communications

Congratulations to Yichen!  His paper, “Allosteric control of olefin isomerization kinetics via remote metal binding and its mechanochemical analysis” is now published in Nature Communications.  Yichen reports the 10,000-fold increase in the rate of alkene isomerization brought about by metal coordination at the opposite end of a strained macrocycle, and work with our colleagues Rob O’Neill and Roman Boulatov leads to a new mechanochemical framework for quantitatively interpreting the data.
