  • Alkene 1,1-difunctionalization can provide direct access to valuable molecules. Now, an organometallic-radical relay strategy involving radical generation through homolysis of the metal–alkyl complex allows catalytic coupling of terminal or internal alkenes with arylboronic acids and electrophilic radical acceptors.

  • Inexpensive Fe–N–C single-atom catalysts are a promising solution to replace costly Pt-based cathode catalysts in fuel cells, but they typically suffer from low durability. Now, the degradation mechanisms of Fe–N–C catalysts are identified under operando conditions as a function of time, and potential solutions are proposed.

  • CO2 conversion to valuable chemicals is of great interest in sustainable chemistry. Now, β-amino acids are synthesized by a dual catalytic strategy that enables the aminocarboxylation of alkenes using CO2, proceeding via alkene radical anion intermediates that are generated using a designed binaphthol-derived photoredox catalyst.
