Former IQCC member Oriol Planas publishes in Science

After some recent papers in Nature, and Nature by members of the IQCC, and in Nature and Science by former IQCC members, right now we have a new entry:

Today a former IQCC member (Oriol Planas) publishes in Science as first author, with the publication of “Fluorination of arylboronic esters enabled by bismuth redox catalysis”. Oriol defended his PhD thesis “Cobalt – Catalyzed C-H funtionalization: From mechanistic studies to synthetic methodologies“ in 2018, then moved to Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung (Germany) as postdocs.

Congratulations Oriol!
