    Tailor-made fibers: A facile method to prepare uniform polyaniline (PANI) nanofibers with high aspect ratio has been described. A magnetic field, superparamagnetic Fe3O4 microspheres, and an appropriate concentration of HCl solution (0.010 m) were found to be paramount for the formation of PANI nanofibers (see figure).

    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.

  5. Gold-Catalyzed Intramolecular Tandem Cyclization of Indole-Ynamides: Diastereoselective Synthesis of Spirocyclic Pyrrolidinoindolines

    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.
