Chemists have committed a breakthrough in the synthesis of three-dimensional molecular structures


Researchers have developed an effective technology for the transformation of several classes of flat nitrogen-containing molecules in the necessary three-dimensional structures.

Currently, the best method for the synthesis of three-dimensional structures is the cyclopric reaction, which is the addition of one molecule to another. In the course of this process, 2 new chemical bonds and one ring are formed between molecules. However, this method does not like for aromatic systems due to the complexity of overcoming the strong energy barrier between atoms.

Now chemists from the University of Westphalian. Wilhelm, Indian and California universities found that the problem can be solved by transmitting light energy. According to a group of scientists, the principle of a new method is similar to photosynthesis, when plants create complex glucose molecules from simple water and carbon dioxide compounds by means of photons.

In the course of experiments, researchers synthesized more than 100 new options for compounds.

Technology can significantly expand the range of synthesized molecules, especially in the pharmaceutical sphere. For example, chemists will be able to effectively work with a wide range of structurally heterogeneous alkenes to develop new drugs.
