Modern alchemy: Chemists devise synthesis of valuable exotic compounds

A broad and strikingly inexpensive method for synthesizing “amines,” a class of organic compounds prominent in drugs and other modern products, has been discovered by a group of chemists. The new reaction is particularly useful for synthesizing complex amines that would be highly valuable in pharmaceuticals, but are impractical -- or impossible -- to make with standard methods.
