Aryl C-H Iodination accepted for publication in JACS

Qinqin’s discovery of a novel C-H iodination reaction for electron deficient aromatic systems, and it’s applicability in the synthesis of novel electron transport materials will be published in JACS. Great collaborative effort working with the members of the Marder, Amassian and Borovik groups to explore the materials applications and probe mechanism. Congrats Qinqin.
