Petrochemicals from corncobs!

See http://j.mp/18fZ9R2: This represents a cost effective and to some extent an environmentally friendly way toward polysubstituted arenes such as isoindolinones, moieties founds in various biologically active compounds.

  • Alternative to substituted benzenic rings
  • Biological active molecules
  • Renewable chemistry
