A new practical synthesis of triaryl and trisindolylmethanes under solvent-free reaction conditions

Author affiliations

Abstract

An efficient and practical synthesis of triaryl and trisindolylmethanes is reported via the bisarylation of aryl aldehydes with activated arenes. The new method features mild solvent-free reaction conditions, in most cases nearly stoichiometric reagent ratios, catalytic amount of the readily available, easily-handled, recoverable and reusable Brønsted acid catalyst o-benzenedisulfonimide.
