# biblatex \fullcite in table

I am receiving an error when I try to use \fullcite{} in a table. Here is a code showing what I would like to accomplish:

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[american]{babel}
\usepackage[backend=bibtex, style=ieee]{biblatex}
\usepackage{filecontents}

\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@article{test,
author = {Abc Def},
year = {2016},
title = {Test},
journal = {Test Journal},
volume =       {1},
number =       {1},
pages =        {1-50}
}
\end{filecontents}

\begin{document}

\begin{table}[h!]
\begin{tabular}{ p{2.5cm} p{12cm} }
\textsc{My Table} & \\ \hline
1st row & \fullcite{test}  \\ % ERROR
2nd row &  something else \\
\end{tabular}
\end{table}

\end{document}


However, when I change \fullcite{test} to \cite{test} or \textcite{test}, everything compiles properly. What is the problem here?

• There is conflict between the & as tabular separator and the & used internally by biblatex/ieee-style to delimit an argument. You can avoid the error by putting the cite in braces: {\fullcite{test}}. – Ulrike Fischer Feb 4 '16 at 15:11
• You should either put your solution as answer or ask me to answer so that the question gets from the "unanswered list". – Ulrike Fischer Feb 4 '16 at 15:30
