Copper(II)-mediated synthesis of indolequinones from bromoquinones and enamines
Inman, Martyn and Moody, Christopher J. (2013) Copper(II)-mediated synthesis of indolequinones from bromoquinones and enamines. European Journal of Organic Chemistry, 2013 (11). pp. 2179-2187. ISSN 1434-193X
The reaction of enamines and bromoquinones in the presence of copper(II) acetate and potassium carbonate results in a regiospecific synthesis of indolequinones. The reaction is broad in scope and scalable and provides a route to the core structure that is present in several biologically interesting natural and synthetic compounds.
