Remarkably reactive dihydroindoloindoles viapalladium-catalysed dearomatisation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Palladium-catalysed dearomatisation reactions allow access to a previously unknown class of indoloindole heterocycle: 5,10b-dihydroindolo[2,3-b]indoles. The highly reactive nature of these compounds is demonstrated by their facile reactions with water and with hydride, alkyl, aryl and allyl-based organometallic nucleophiles.
