  • Catalyst combining reactivity and selectivity could speed drug development

    University of Illinois chemists led by professor Christina White (center) developed a new catalyst based on the metal manganese that is both highly reactive and highly selective, traits previously thought to be inversive. Graduate students, from left: Shauna Paradine, Shannon Miller, Jinpeng Zhao, Aaron Petronico and Jennifer Griffin.
