|Title:||The Michael Addition of Indole to α,β-Unsaturated Ketones Catalyzed by Iodine at Room Temperature|
|Citation:||Wang, S.-Y.,Ji, S.-J.,Loh, T.-P. (2003). The Michael Addition of Indole to α,β-Unsaturated Ketones Catalyzed by Iodine at Room Temperature. Synlett (15) : 2377-2379. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.|
|Abstract:||Indole undergoes conjugate addition with α,β-unsaturated ketones by means of alkylation of indole in the presence of a catalytic amount of molecular I2 at room temperature to afford the corresponding adduct in excellent yields (up to 96%). The substitution on the indole nucleus occurred exclusively at the 3-position. N-alkylation products have not been observed.|
