An Atmosphere and Light Tuned Highly Diastereoselective Synthesis of Cyclobuta/penta[b]indoles from Aniline-tethered Alkylidenecyclopropanes with Alkynes

Abstract

Metal-free and highly controlled by natural sources like visible light and air (or oxygen) environmentally friendly synthesis is always a pursuit of green chemistry. In this paper, an atmosphere and light tuned highly diastereoselective synthesis of two important polyheterocyclic skeletons: cyclobuta/penta[b]indoles from aniline-tethered alkylidenecyclopropanes with alkynes, has been developed. The chiral cyclobuta/penta[b]indoles have also been obtained by optical resolution.
