This year being C&EN’s 90th anniversary, we donned celebratory accessories for our annual staff photo. And we packed like sardines for an all-staff celebration at Thomas Foolery, a small bar in Washington, D.C.’s Dupont Circle. We chowed on soup and grilled cheese sandwiches, which we washed down with special C&EN cocktails the bar crew concocted for us.

—Directing group lets chemists reach remote C–H bonds “New reaction activates γ-C–H bonds over the conventionally favored β-C–H bonds” Because of their ubiquity in organic compounds, C–H bonds have long tantalized chemists as synthetic handles. But these bonds are both relatively inert and virtually indistinguishable to reagents, synthetic challenges that have spawned an entire field of research known as C–H activation.

—Technique turns C–H neighbors into diamines “Combo of electro- and photochemistry allows double C–H activation” Researchers have upped the ante on carbon-hydrogen bond activation by transforming two adjacent C–H bonds in one reaction. Tristan Lambert and Tao Shen at Cornell University used a mix of light and electrochemistry to convert neighboring C–H bonds on simple hydrocarbons to cyclic amine and diamine derivatives, molecules often found in useful drug compounds (Science, 2021, DOI: 10.1126/science.abf2798).
