PIDA-Mediated Oxidative C−C Bond Formation: Novel Synthesis of Indoles from N-Aryl Enamines

2009-06-04T00:00:00Z (GMT) by Wenquan Yu Yunfei Du Kang Zhao
A variety of functionalized indoles were synthesized from N-aryl enamines via PIDA-mediated oxidative carbon−carbon bond formation. The features of the present reaction include facilitative preparation of substrates 2, good functional group tolerance, and mild reaction conditions without transition metals.
