    Copper-grafted guanidine acetic acid-modified magnetite nanoparticles (Fe3O4@GAA-Cu(ӀӀ)) as a green, superparamagnetic and recoverable nanocatalyst is found to promote quantitative N-acylation of various amines in a very short time with an equimolar amount of thioacetic acid in water at room temperature.

    Two new orthopalladated complexes have been synthesized and characterized by various techniques. The compounds can bind to CT-DNA via partial intercalative mode. Fluorescence spectrometry of BSA with the complexes shows that the fluorescence quenching mechanism of BSA is a static process. The complexes exhibit significant in vitro cytotoxicity against two human cancer cell lines (Jurkat and MCF-7). A molecular docking experiment effectively proves the binding of the Pd(II) complexes to DNA and BSA.

    A series of Ni/Zn acetylacetonate hybrids were prepared via a hydrothermal method. The characterization of C10H18O6Ni0.7Zn0.3 as a solid metal–organic compound was investigated. Th hybrids can be considered as suitable precursors for the synthesis of oxides via metal–organic chemical vapour deposition. Transition point of magnetic behaviour at critical Ni concentration was predicted by varying molar ratios of atoms in the hybrids.

    A semi-synthetic method has been developed for the synthesis of aminoarylbenzosuberenes (AABs) from naturally occurring himachalenes, an isomeric mixture of sesquiterpenes present in Cedrus deodara oil. Polymer-stabilized Pd(0) (Pd@PS) nanoparticle-catalysed Suzuki–Miyaura cross-coupling reaction of aminovinyl bromide-substituted benzosuberenes has been adopted for AAB synthesis.
