Alan Goldman Nov 2013 v3Alan Goldman and postdoctoral Ritu Ahuja, in collaboration with Maurice Brookhart and his team at the University of North Carolina, have reported the development of a catalytic system for alkane metathesis (Science magazine). This novel system could ultimately lead to the more efficient conversion of coal or biomass to clean-burning diesel fuel. DISCOVER magazine has named this as one of the "Top 100 Science Stories of 2006". See the NJN-PBS TV Clip “Coal to Diesel” video.
