New Reaction: Pauson-Khand cycloaddition


I launched the site with 70 of the most popular name-reactions. Since then my focus has primarily been on improving the site under the hood. Mainly speed improvements, some new features, and other ongoing work.

The goal has always been to one day have over 200 name-reactions and I often get requests for new ones. Today we are announcing the addition of a new reaction to the site and an increased effort to add more.

Our latest addition is thanks to one of our users

Michael Edmunds, a Master's student at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada, emailed me expressing his desire to help produce more content for the site. The Pauson Khand reaction is his first contribution and I have to say that I was quite impressed working with him.

We hope you enjoy this reaction and stay posted for more to come.

We have just released two more reactions; varations of the Claisen rearrangement.
