Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have discovered a chemical reaction that has the potential to lower the cost and streamline the manufacture of compounds ranging from agricultural chemicals to pharmaceuticals, the university says. The researchers discovered a substance called phthaloyl peroxide. This chemical was previously studied in the late 1950s and early 1960s, but it has been largely ignored during the intervening years. The advantage to using phthaloyl peroxide is that the reaction does not require the use of acids or catalysts to...
