Synthesis of 2-phenyl indoxyls

2006 ARKIVOC  
Described herein is a novel route to 2-phenylindoxyls. A previously undisclosed acid catalyzed reaction of N-hydroxyalkyl-3-acetoxy-2-phenylindoles gave the desired 2-phenylindoxyls, the identity of which was confirmed by 2D-NMR. The product structure represents a scaffold that could be exploited in a pharmaceutical or academic setting.
