Professor Matt Whited published in Journal of the American Chemical Society

22 April 2024

Matt Whited, chair and professor of chemistry, published an article in Journal of the American Chemical Society titled, “Regulating Access to Active Sites via Hydrogen Bonding and Cation–Dipole Interactions: A Dual Cofactor Approach to Switchable Catalysis.” This work, a result of sabbatical collaboration at UNC Chapel Hill, demonstrates that hydrogen bonding can be used as a “gate” for access to molecular catalysts, a mechanism long known for biological systems.
