View OBC issue 28 today – it’s out now!

The front cover of this issue of OBC highlights the work of Tirumala G. Varadarajua and Jih Ru Hwu, demonstrating an efficient and convergent route for the synthesis of the natural product (+)-lithospermic acid, developing two different synthetic routes for the diastereoselective synthesis of the trans-dihydrobenzo[b]furan segment of lithospermic acid.

The Communication highlighted on the inside cover of this issue comes from Pandi Muthupandi and Govindasamy Sekar, Indian Institute of Technology Madras, and presents the synthesis of an unusual dinuclear chiral iron complex that was used to asymmetrically hydrophosphorylate aldehydes to synthesis optically active α-hydroxy phosphonates.
