Direct and Selective 3-Amidation of Indoles Using Electrophilic N-[(Benzenesulfonyl)oxy]amides.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Selective C-H amidation of 1H-indoles at the C3 position is reported as a direct entry to biologically important 3-aminoindoles. This transformation is achieved using novel N-[(benzenesulfonyl)oxy]amides as electrophilic nitrogen agents in the presence of ZnCl2 . Interestingly, analogous reactions in the absence of ZnCl2 resulted in the formation of indole aminal products.
