A trans diacyloxylation of indoles

Author affiliations


A trans diacyloxylation of indoles is accomplished by employing PhI(OAc)2 as the oxidant. A broad range of functional groups are well tolerated. Both the electronic properties of the N-protecting groups of indoles and the acidity of the reaction media play important roles in the selectivity of indole acyloxylation reactions.
