Life on sulfur. Why we need complete genomes

The ability of bacteria to grow on inorganic compounds like sulfur was discovered by Russian microbiologist Sergey Winogradskij in 1888. First, he studied a sulfur bacterium of the Beggiatoaceae family to demonstrate that it can produce energy

When sulfur meets oxidant

Transition-metal-catalyzed oxidative cross-coupling between boronic acids and heteroatom nucleophiles has been well known as the Chan−Lam reaction and emerged as a powerful protocol for the construction of carbon-nitrogen bonds or carbon-oxygen bonds, due to a variety of

Trifluoromethylthiolation of aliphatic electrophiles

As one of the most advanced technologies currently available for studying in vivo molecular interactions, positron emission tomography (PET) is a functional imaging technique that can produce a three-dimensional image of functional processes in the body. It
