    Synthesis of fluoren-9-ones by a Rh-catalyzed intramolecular C−H/C−I carbonylative coupling of 2-iodobiphenyls using furfural, which is readily available from biomass, as a carbonyl source has been developed (see scheme). The findings indicate that the rate-determining step is not a C−H bond cleavage but, rather, the oxidative addition of the C−I bond to a RhI center.

  3. Supramolecular Recognition of Amino Acids by Twisted Cucurbit[14]uril

    It comes with a twist: Binding interactions between twisted cucurbit[14]uril (tQ[14]) and twenty standard amino acids (AAs) have been investigated. The results showed that tQ[14] displays clear binding affinity for AAs with a positively charged side chain or containing an aromatic ring, but weaker binding affinity for AAs with hydrophobic or polar side chains, with the binding mode depending on the type of side chain present in the AAs.

    Nanoparticle and nanowire electrode: The collision of single Pt nanoparticles onto an Au nanowire electrode was observed by using electrocatalytic amplification. Previously, such observations had typically been performed by using a microscale disk-type ultramicroelectrode. The use of a nanowire electrode decreased the background noise current and provided a shielding effect, owing to adsorption of the NPs onto the insulating sheath.
