Byproduct promoted regioselective sulfenylation of indoles with sulfinic acids

Author affiliations

Abstract

An unprecedented method to synthesise 3-sulfenylindoles is demonstrated via byproduct promoted sulfenylation of indoles with sulfinic acids in the absence of an external catalyst. The reaction selectively afforded structurally diverse indole thioethers in good to excellent yields in 1,2-dichloroethane at 80 °C.
