One-pot sequences of hydrogenation/hydroamination to form indoles from (2-nitroaryl)alkynes and hydrogenation/reductive amination to form aniline derivatives from nitroarenes and aldehydes were catalyzed by Au nanoparticles supported on Fe2O3. Nitro group selective hydrogenations and successive reactions were efficiently catalyzed under the conditions.
