Chemoselective N–H functionalization of indole derivatives via the Reissert-type reaction catalyzed by a chiral phosphoric acid

Abstract

An asymmetric N-alkylation of indole derivatives via the Reissert-type reaction was realized in the presence of a catalytic amount of chiral phosphoric acid. Various enantioenriched indoles with N-1 substituted by 1,2-dihydroisoquinoline could be obtained under mild conditions in good yields and enantioselectivities at room temperature (up to 98% yield, 94% ee). The current method is compatible with gram-scale reaction and the products can undergo versatile chemical transformations.
