Title: Eco-Friendly Solid State Photodecarbonylation for the Synthesis of Biologically Active Natural Products

University of California - Los Angeles students are studying the synthesis of biologically active pharmaceuticals using a solid state reaction as the key step. By carrying out this chemoselective reaction in the solid state, they can avoid the use of solvents and unwanted byproducts, thereby reducing toxic waste.

Challenge Area(s): Materials and Chemicals
