How are UW-La Crosse researchers combating the use of harmful solvents in industrial chemical synthesis?

Dr. Robert McGaff and fellow researchers in UW-La Crosse's Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry recently discovered a series of environmentally friendly, iron-containing catalysts that allow them to provide a 'green' means of synthesizing industrial chemicals. While further development is underway, it is envisioned that such a technology could provide significant value to chemical manufacturing companies, in particular those focused on the production of fine chemicals.
