Now that 2015 is ending I remember a nice tradition we used to have in the research centre where I did my first postdoc. At the end of December we had a “Reaction of the year” seminar in which everyone of us had to present a paper we thought it was the most important contribution of the year.

I would like to use a similar idea in this post to open a discussion in which everyone can say their #favouritepaperof2015 and why. So I am going first…

Yeah, the main reason I liked so much this paper is that I may have a bit of an obsession with halogenation reactions in general. Anyway it is a must read paper in this year 2015, I’ve recently wrote a post about it if you are interested.

Besides my favourite paper of the year, for those who want to read a bit of chemistry during the Christmas break I would like to recommend you a couple of reviews and highlights on topics I really like and I hope you also enjoy (click on the pictures to go to the links).
