A Quick And Nerdy Question
As a brief followup to my "Elements I Have Yet to Use" post, I note this new paper on cleavage of molecular nitrogen by a hafnium complex. And to get right down to organic synthesis, here's a paper from last year that used hafnium triflate as a Lewis acid.
OK, here goes: has anyone out there ever used hafnium for anything? Anything at all? I sure haven't. (N.b. - ordering some on purpose to raise your desktop monitor or prop the door open does not count).
