From the Molecule to the Mole- Improving Heterogeneous Copper Catalyzed Click Chemistry using Single Molecule Spectroscopy
Single molecule spectroscopy (SMS) inspired the optimization of a heterogeneous ‘click’ catalyst leading to enhanced yields of the Cu-catalyzed reaction of azides with terminal alkynes. Changes in SMS data after optimization confirm the improvements in catalyst performance.
