Organocatalytic direct C3 alkenylation of indoles has been developed. Simple and readily available morpholine trifluoroacetic acid salt is employed as an efficient catalyst in this oxidative dehydrogenative reaction. Simplicity and practicality constitute the most attractive advantages of this reaction.
In the title compound, C(19)H(24)O(4), the six-membered lactone ring adopts an envelope conformation with the tert-butoxy-carbonyl and isopropyl substituents in axial positions, and the phenyl group in an equatorial position. In the crystal structure, weak inter-molecular C-H⋯O hydrogen bonds link the mol-ecules into centrosymmetric dimers.
