Nitro-activated aryl halides are precursors to biaryl compounds which constitute the cornerstone of pharmaceutical industry, either through the century old Ullmann coupling or the more recent C-H functionalization methods.
Bruce Lipshutz, Professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of California Santa Barbara, demonstrated that the use of Zymes' PTS can be applied to three diverse types of widely used chemical reactions (Suzuki-Miyaura biaryl couplings, Heck reactions, and intermolecular olefin cross-metathesis) that now proceed with water-insoluble materials, with water as the only solvent.
