    A magnetic hybrid material (Fe3O4-COOH/HKUST-1) was easily synthesized via a two-step simple solvothermal method. The magnetic hybrid material has a high specific surface area and excellent magnetism and it is an efficient adsorbent for removing organic dyes like methylene blue (MB) from aqueous solution.

  2. An easily organic–inorganic hybrid optical sensor based on dithizone impregnation on mesoporous SBA-15 for simultaneous detection and removal of Pb(II) ions from water samples: Response-surface methodology

    A direct route to fluorenones by palladium-catalyzed cyclocarbonylation of cyclic diaryliodoniums with CO was developed in high yields. In addition, one pot strategy was developed from 1-(2-iodophenyl)-1H-indole to syntheses indole fluorenones in modest yields via the formation of cyclic diaryliodoniums.
