An AcOH-mediated metal free approach towards the synthesis of bis-carbolines and imidazopyridoindole derivatives and assessment of their photophysical properties

Author affiliations

Abstract

An AcOH-mediated concise, atom-economical and environmentally sustainable tandem strategy has been formulated to access highly fluorescent (ΦF up to 40%) N-fused bis-carbolines, imidazopyrido[3,4-b]indoles and imidazo[1,5-a]pyridines via the formation of three C–N bonds in a single operation. The multicomponent character of the reaction, easy to execute reaction conditions, simple purification procedure and excellent light emitting properties of the product afforded thereof provide a huge scope.
