An efficient and green procedure has been developed for the synthesis of chromenes using 1,3-diketones and ɑ,β-unsaturated aldehydes. The effect of reaction conditions including solvents, water content, molar ratio of substrates and catalyst loading were investigated. A series of chromene derivatives were prepared with moderate to high yields under the catalysis of bovine serum albumin (BSA) in isopropanol successfully. This novel activity of BSA to catalyze the domino reaction is not only of practical significance in expanding the application of biocatalysts, but also providing more convenient synthetic method for green chemistry.

Indium-mediated reductive condensation reactions of various nitroarenes with o-phthalaldehyde toward isoindolin-1-ones were investigated. In the presence of indium/AcOH in toluene at reflux, nitroarenes were coupled and cyclized with o-phthalaldehyde to produce corresponding isoindolin-1-ones with reasonable yields.

A facile method for the synthesis of 3-oxo-2H,4H-1,4-benzothiazine-2-carbonitrile (2-cyano-2H-1,4-benzothiazin-3(4H)-one) derivatives has been developed. Sodium hydride-mediated cyclization of methyl {[2-(cyanomethyl)sulfanyl]phenyl}carbamate, which can be easily prepared from commercially available 2-aminobenzenethiol in two steps, allows the synthesis of 3-oxo-2H,4H-1,4-benzothiazine-2-carbonitrile and its 2-mono- and 2,4-di- alkylated derivatives in one-pot.

A convenient, effective and metal-free method for the synthesis of C-4 sulfenylated pyrazolones via HBr-promoted sulfenylation of pyrazolones with N-(organothio)succinimides as sulfur sources was developed. The method can be extended to apply for substrates 4-hydroxycoumarins. A series of C-4 sulfenylated pyrazolones and C-3 sulfenylated 4-hydroxycoumarins were smootly synthesized in good to excellent yields.

An efficient and stereoselective one-pot approach for synthesizing 3-(1,3-diarylprop-2-yn-1-ylidene)oxindoles has been developed, starting from propiolamide, aryl iodides and arylacetylenes and utilizing two palladium-catalyzed reactions: the Sonogashira and Heck reactions. This method produced (E)-3-(1,3-diarylprop-2-yn-1-ylidne)oxindoles as the major stereoisomers. This is the first time an effective synthetic method for (E)-isomer of these compounds has been reported.
