The photochemical decarbonylation of several crystalline 1,3-acetonedicarboxylates has been analyzed in solution and in the solid state. It is shown that the efficiency of the solid-state reaction depends on the stability of the intermediate acyl-alkyl and alkyl-alkyl radical pairs. Reactions proceeding through tertiary enol radicals are more efficient than(More)
An efficient approach for the synthesis of benzo-fused pyridoindolone derivatives via a one-pot copper catalyzed tandem reaction of 2-iodobenzamides with 2-iodobenzylcyanides has been developed. Using this protocol, benzo-fused pyridoindolone derivatives are obtained in high yields in a relatively short period of time under mild reaction conditions. To the(More)
