Rice researchers stand by the custom reactor they use to produce a nitrogen polarity-reversal agent in bulk

Rice University scientists generalize the synthesis of aminating agents to simplify the design and manufacture of drugs and other fine chemicals in which nitrogen atoms play key roles. Each of these agents contains an active electrophilic nitrogen atom to help chemists forge carbon-nitrogen bonds more easily than ever.
