Separated tandem catalysis

It's about time

Article metrics

One-pot processes in which a single catalyst carries out several reactions are attractive, but typically promote the formation of by-products as well as the desired ones, and are not amenable to optimization of the individual transformations. Now, these issues have been overcome by separating the catalytic processes in time.
