Epoxide, a cyclic ether, can be used to obtain important alcohols, pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and functional polymers. This transformation is facilitated by the reductive ring opening of epoxide. Traditionally, the reaction has been catalyzed using titanocene. However, in this case, the products are predominantly obtained via more stable radicals. Now, chemists from Waseda University, Japan, turn the tables and broaden the scope of this reaction using zirconocene as a novel catalyst under visible light irradiation.
Inter-utility water agreements can help mitigate risks, in research that used supercomputer simulations of water supply in the North Carolina Research Triangle. Findings are generalizable to any place where water providers face financial and supply challenges in allocating regional water. XSEDE allocations on TACC Stampede2 system simulated water supply for two million people in the North Carolina Research Triangle out to 2060. Authors developed computational model together with regional utilities in North Carolina.
