Abstract Zirconium (IV) tetradentate Schiff base (salphen) complex has been successfully used for efficient synthesis of wide variety of indole derivatives in EtOH as a standard green solvent under mild conditions. The investigation of turnover number and reusability of the catalyst indicate well the high efficiency and relative stability of the Zr-complex in this reaction.
