New Efficient Method for the Preparation of 2-Aryl-4,6-Dinitroindoles: Reductive Cyclization of E-1-(2-Azido-4,6-Dinitrophenyl)-2-Arylethenes
Abstract:A new efficient method for the preparation of 2-aryl-4,6-dinitroindoles based on reductive cyclization of E-2- azido-4,6-dinitrostilbenes under the action of FeCl3 6H2O - NaI system - in the CH3CN media at room temperature has been developed.
