  It's ACIE puns, originally brought to you by Excimer. He talks business, ladies and g. Check this out:

  Is the scientific community about to kiss awake iron catalysis, a topic that has been dormant for decades?

  Credits are due to MIT for bringing in very likeable and smart women. There's not only Alice Ting. Meet Prof. Sarah O'Connor and check out her periwinkle chemistry! I suppose there's no need to tell who's on the right.

Iron can do some cool stuff (check out Christina White's oxidation work) but, barring some major palladium shortage, don't expect it to magically replace palladium as Fürstner hopes it will. Those iron-catalyzed Kumada-like cross-couplings are a bitch to replicate (95% yield Alois? Really?), whereas a regular Ni-catalyzed Kumada is so easy my undergrads can do it.

ACIE puns are the best in the industry. Much love.

Iron can indeed do a lot of cool stuff, I was of course joking about laying off Pd.

Is that how you attract premeds to chemistry? With Ni-Kumadas? :)
