Iodine-catalyzed condensation of 2-amino-3,5-dibromobenzamide with cyclohexane-1,3-dione derivatives in refluxing toluene afforded the corresponding bisquinazolinones. Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling of the latter with arylboronic acids afforded tetraarylbisquinazolinones. The electronic absorption and emission properties of these tetraarylbisquinazolinones(More)
A series of novel 2,5,7-tricarbo-substituted indoles were prepared via sequential Sonogashira and Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling of 2-amino-5-bromo-3-iodoacetophenone with terminal acetylenes and aryl/styrylboronic acids followed by palladium chloride-mediated heteroannulation of the incipient 5-aryl/styryl-substituted 2-amino-3-(arylalkynyl)acetophenones.(More)
A series of novel N-((2,5-diaryl-3-trifluoroacetyl)-1H-indol-7-yl)acetamides has been prepared via a successive and one-pot reaction sequence involving initial trifluoroacetic acid-mediated Beckmann rearrangement of the oximes derived from the 1-(2,5-diaryl-1H-indol-7-yl)ethanones, followed by trifluoroacetylation of the incipient(More)
