    HHATA yoga: 5,8,13,16,21,24-Hex-(triisopropylsilyl)ethynyl)-6,23-dihydro-6,7,14,15,22,23-hexazatrianthrylene (HHATA) is weakly blue fluorescent and can be easily oxidized to the strongly red fluorescent 5,8,13,16,21,24-hex-(triisopropylsilyl)ethynyl)-6,7,14,15,22,23-hexazatrianthrylene (HATA) by Cu2+ ions. Thus, this reaction can be developed as an effective method for the detection of Cu2+ ions.

    A gold-catalyzed intramolecular tandem cyclization of indole-ynamide affords tetracyclic spiro-pyrrolidinoindolines bearing an all-carbon quaternary stereocentre in a single step. In the presence of BF3⋅Et2O, the corresponding tricyclic spiro-pyrrolidinoindoline-based enones are synthesized through a key 1,5-hydride shift. This method provides a diastereoselective and straightforward entry to structurally diverse polycylic pyrrolidinoindolines.

    There ought to be a strict separation: A closely spaced triad system was synthesized possessing a central corrole that linked the energy donor triphenylamine at the meso position and the electron acceptor fullerene at the β-pyrrole position. The occurrence of rapid charge separation leading to high-energy charge-separated state in nonpolar toluene is demonstrated.
