Ad Hoc Adjustment of Photoredox Properties by the Late-Stage Diversification of Acridinium Photocatalysts

Well done Valeriia. Acridinium photocatalysts can now be late-stage diversified to adjust their redox properties (including the new aza-rhodol photoredox catalysts), now published in Org. Lett.

Catalyst Control over Twofold and Higher-Order Stereogenicity by Atroposelective Arene Formation

Congratulations Tanno. Our ongoing journey through the realms of atropisomeric molecules, now outlined in Acc. Chem. Res.
