For the big screen: An alcohol oxidase/peroxidase-based screen for combinatorial catalysis produces a signal in the visible region and in real time. A targeted high-throughput screen uncovered a bromometalation/ carbocyclization route to bicyclic terpenoid cores and a thiocyano palladation/carbocyclization for the ready installation of vinyl thiocyanates.
