Organic synthesis

FMD3 scientists developed a convenient procedure for scalable preparation of two important organic building blocks

A catalytic, high yielding procedure for the synthesis of 9H-carbazole-3,6-dicarbo-nitrile has been developed, following its facile hydrolytic transformation to 9H-carbazole-3,6-dicarboxylic acid. Both compounds are versatile building blocks for material science, medicinal and supramolecular chemistry.
