(said I, channeling my inner Dr. Freddy...)
Guangbin Dong of the University of Texas-Austin has just published three papers in three different journals with Impact Factors over three. What's more - he did it all in the same week.
|Just think of them as buckyballs|
"Regioselective ketone alpha-alkylation with simple olefins by dual activation"
Science, published 4 July 2014; 2013 IF: 31.0
"Cooperative alkylation of cyclobutanones and olefins leads to bridged ring systems by a catalytic [4+2] coupling"
Nature Chemistry, published 6 July 2014; 2013 IF: 21.8
"Alkylation of rhodium porphyrins using ammonium and quinolium salts"
Organometallics, published 7 July 2014; 2013 IF: 4.1
I hereby institute the Chempubs Hat Trick - Three papers, Three Journals, IF > 3.0, one week.
Congratulations to Prof. Dong for winning the inaugural award! But, I'm sure I've missed others who've been so deserving. Readers, have you noticed anyone else - present OR past! - who made this many simultaneous "shots on goal"?
