Cu-mediated direct regioselective C-2 chlorination of indoles

Author affiliations

Abstract

Cu-mediated C-2 chlorination of indoles was accomplished with copper(II) chloride through the use of a directing pyrimidyl protection group. A highly regioselective manner can be achieved on a range of indole substrates with excellent functional group tolerance.
