Cu/Pd catalysis review article

Submitted by Adam R. Johnson, Harvey Mudd College

VIPEr user and supporter Melanie Sanford has a recent review article entitled "High-valent organometallic copper and palladium in catalysis." The article reviews the use of high-valent Cu and Pd catalysts for improving the activity, selectivity, and scope of chemical processes. Coauthor Amanda Hickman is my former student (insert paternal pride here).

Congratulations Melanie and Amanda!
