Lead
Lay summary
Organic synthesis uses human intelligence to create new molecules that Nature does not made or molecules that Nature makes in tiny amounts and which are very useful to man. We start with furans readily available form the biomass and transform them into complicated molecules that are potential drugs or molecular tools for biology and medicine.
