Hitting more than the bull's eye in organic synthetic chemistry
You are quite likely to hit your target when you set your sights on it. However, you are also quite likely to miss other important ones nearby with too narrow a focus. This principle holds true in synthetic chemistry and conventional "target-oriented synthesis," in which a single compound of interest is identified and synthesised. As a result, when it comes to natural products and families of compounds, the industry achieves a very low return on research investment. The EU-funded CoSyMoDe project is developing a versatile tool to expand discovery potential and open the door to a whole group of related target compounds.
