Putting two and two together

Researchers have developed a cobalt-catalyzed reaction that may give unprecedented access to cyclobutanes, four-membered ring-containing molecules. Until now these reactions, so named for their carbon-carbon double bond starting materials called alkenes, have been limited in scope, leaving many cyclobutane compounds out of reach, along with any potentially beneficial properties.
