New Method for Stereospecific Quat Center Formation

We’re so excited to see Jianyu and Olivia’s work published (link)! Jianyu discovered that the addition of a stilbene enables stereospecific cross-couplings of benzylic carboxylates without naphthyl substitution! Olivia’s mechanistic studies show that there’s more to learn about this intriguing catalyst system (more to come on that). Congrats to Jianyu and Olivia!
