The sequential Sonogashira reaction and the cyclization reaction of various 2-iodoanilines and terminal alkynes in the presence of a palladium catalyst and tetrabutylammonium fluoride (TBAF) gave the corresponding 2-substituted indoles in good yields.
The reaction of ethyl 2-ethynylphenylcarbamate derivative with alkenes in the presence of a palladium(II) catalyst, copper dichloride and tetrabutylammonium fluoride (TBAF) produced 2-substituted 3-ethenylindoles during refluxing. The intramolecular cyclization reaction of ethyl 2-ethynylphenylcarbamates, which have an ethenyl part in the ethynyl group, was(More)
Furostifoline, a furo[3,2-a]carbazole alkaloid, was synthesized in 10% overall yield in four steps from 2-acetyl-3-bromofuran. The key step of this synthesis was the 2-substituted indole formation with tetrabutylammonium fluoride (TBAF) from 2-(2-propenyl)-3-((2-ethoxycarbonylamino)phenylethynyl)furan, which was easily prepared from ethyl(More)
