Great times for Vladimir Grushin team’s research

Three articles stand out in three different journals

Fluoroform-derived CuCF3 was recently discovered by the research group of Prof. Vladimir Grushin. The paper published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society was one of the most accessed publications at the time.

This was the starting point for a series of successful papers that have been now highlighted in different journals.

The latest issue of Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN), the American Chemical Society’s magazine, reports on the first example of fluoroform activation with palladium(II), published by Grushin and Takemoto in JACS.

The cover of the latest issue of The Journal of Organic Chemistry features fluoroform as, by far, the best CF3 source for trifluoromethylation reactions.

In this issue you will find a Featured Article by Grushin’s research team on the Trifluoromethylation of Aryl and Heteroaryl Halides with Fluoroform-Derived CuCF3. The article ranked on the Top 3 most read papers of the journal in August and September and the Top 10 most accessed in October.

On the other hand, the paper published in Organometallics on the highly efficient scalable synthesis of [(Ph3P)3Ru(CO)(H)2], an important homogeneous catalyst, was one of the Top 5 most read Organometallics articles in August and October.
