Chemists at Scripps Research have efficiently created three families of complex, oxygen-containing molecules that are normally obtainable only from plants. These molecules, called terpenes, are potential starting points for new drugs and other high-value products — marking an important development for multiple industries. In addition, the new approach could allow chemists to build many other classes of compounds.
