watson-group-1A team of researchers from the University of Delaware (UD) have reported their findings about a new chemical reaction that uses palladium as a catalyst in a process where carbon-hydrogen bonds are converted to carbon-silicon bonds. The process could lead to development of new materials, and it has a huge potential in development and manufacture… »
