The superacid-promoted reactions of α-hydroxy and α-ketoamides have been studied. Ionization of these compounds leads to varied aryl-substituted oxyindole products. In some cases, electrocyclization can lead to substituted fluorene products. Dicationic, superelectrophilic intermediates are proposed as intermediates leading to the products from α-hydroxy and α-ketoamides.
