Reactions within Molecular Single Crystals of Inorganic and Organometallic Compounds: Recent Advances and Implications for Catalysis

Find the answer within: Transformations within molecular single crystals of organometallic compounds are very rare and usually involve (reversible) loss of solvent molecules or ligands. A great stride forward in the field of such transformations was recently made, involving the first selective catalytic transformation within single crystals, which neither was on surface or surface sites, nor in solution.
