Reflecting on the Organometallics roundtable discussion

Although only introduced recently, the concept of publishing an article based on a discussion between key-academics is really interesting as it allows much more of a discussion to science than traditionally printed articles. A few key points really stood out (http://pubs.acs.org/doi/pdf/10.1021/om500253z) such as “it would be useful to develop arrays of catalysts that can operate in a cooperative manner, via appropriate regulatory mechanisms that allow turning the catalysts on and off” and “that researchers should seek to catalyze new and different reactions.” Always good to see your own papers mentioned too!
