New enzyme-like tool lets chemists modify hard-to-reach spots on drug molecules

Chemists have devised a versatile molecule-building tool for creating new drugs and other chemical products. The invention brings chemistry a step closer to an ambitious goal: being able to use techniques of laboratory organic synthesis to make the highly selective transformations of molecules that enzymes catalyze in living cells — but without enzymes’ limitations.
