A new synthetic approach to novel axially chiral benzocarbazole derivatives based on the highly enantioselective intramolecular hydroarylation (94-96% ee) of linked alkyne-indole systems by using the prevalent chiral base catalyst, cinchonidine or cinchonine, under unprecedented transition-metal-free conditions is described. The process is considered to involve chiral base catalysis for enantioselective transformation of the alkyne part to a reaction intermediate with an axially chiral vinylidene o-quinone methide (VQM) functionality, which subsequently effects stereospecific cyclization with the tethered indole moiety.

Polymers of N-SUBSTITUTED GLYCINES containing chiral centers at the a-position of their side chains. These oligomers lack HYDROGEN BONDING donors, preventing formation of the usual intrachain hydrogen bonds but can form helices driven by the steric influence of chiral side chains.
RNA that has catalytic activity. The catalytic RNA sequence folds to form a complex surface that can function as an enzyme in reactions with itself and other molecules. It may function even in the absence of protein. There are numerous examples of RNA species that are acted upon by catalytic RNA, however the scope of this enzyme class is not limited to a particular type of substrate.
