A straightforward protocol for the synthesis of functionalized thieno­[2,3-b]­indoles by base-mediated [3 + 2]-annulation of indoline-2-thione with Morita–Baylis–Hillman and Rauhut–Currier adducts of nitroalkenes is described. Complete regioselectivity, broad substrate scope, and mild reaction conditions make this strategy very valuable. Moreover, the thieno­[2,3-b]­indoles comprising functional groups such as hydrazine and ketoalkyl moieties are amenable for further synthetic elaboration.
