Deepening the knowledge of Henry reaction catalyzed by squaramides

We have just published very interesting studies about the Henry reaction, which allow understanding more in detail the activation of the substrates by a very effective squaramide. Enjoy them… Congratulations Juanvi! “Push−Pull π+/π−” (PPππ) Systems in Catalysis, Alegre Requena J. … Continue reading
