Papish Group Publishes in Organometallics on Hydrogenation in Water with New Bifunctional Ligand

November 14, 2011 — New ligand places hydrogen bonding groups near the metal center, and ruthenium complexes with this ligand allow for “green” transfer hydrogenations run in water as the solvent. This article was a team effort and included postdoctoral, graduate student, and undergraduate co-authors.  This work was funded by ACS-PRF and NSF CAREER.
