Fern’s paper (well, Stephen Thomas’ paper)

Fern has published a paper on some work she did in her undergraduate project with Stephen Thomas at the University of Edinburgh. Steve’s group develops simple iron catalysts as alternatives to expensive platinum group metals. In this instance, they’ve applied their work to the synthesis of that ubiquitous drug ibuprofen. Congrats Fern!
