Congratulations to David Nagib and lab members Lu Wang, Jeremy M. Lear, Sean M. Rafferty, and Stacy C. Fosu for getting published in the October 12th issue of Science. This study offers a new method of forming reactive intermediates called ketyl radicals that is more sustainable and waste-free compared to the alternative. In an article from Ohio State News, David Nagib states, “The previous strategy for creating ketyl radicals is about a century old. We have a found a complementary way to access ketyl radicals using LED lights for the synthesis of complex, drug-like molecules.” We are very proud of the Nagib Lab for their accomplishment!
