Prabhat Ranjan recently published his work in Chemistry A European Journal

Prabhat Ranjan recently published his work in Chemistry A European Journal. Sustainable chemistry always seeks new synthetic tools. This study brings into light new catalytic properties of triphenylphosphine with the following features: fast, inexpensive, and broad applicability towards dearomative spirocyclizations. Triphenylphosphine has been applied for the synthesis of complex spiro(hetero)cycles in batch and employing continuous flow, a field largely dominated by transition metals. In the cover image, triphenylphosphine has been shown to act as a ...
