In April, scientists discovered evidence for this new state of matter in (http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/04/160404111559.htm) alpha ruthenium chloride - a 2-dimensional material with a honeycomb structure.
Ruthenium chloride gave conversions of 69% while Rh[(N[O.sub.3]).sub.3] was slightly lower, with 67% conversion.
The Lewis acids, stannous chloride dihydrate, aluminum chloride and ruthenium chloride hydrate, along with TEMPO (a free radical trapping agent) were supplied by Aldrich Chemical.
Dimethylformamide (DMF) was used to dissolve stannous chloride while 2-octanol was used for ruthenium chloride and tetrahydrofuran was used for aluminum chloride.
