Synthesis of 3-substituted indoles via reactive alkylideneindolenine intermediates

Author affiliations

Abstract

Elimination of suitable leaving groups from 3-substituted indoles under basic or acidic conditions readily provides alkylideneindolenine intermediates that may react with a large variety of nucleophilic reagents. This article highlights some recent developments of this synthetic approach for the preparation of functionalized indole derivatives.
