Abstract: Aryl free-radicals generated at the C-7 position of ethyl indole-2-carboxylates bearing N-allyl and propargylic groups triggered intramolecular cyclizations to furnish a new class of Duocarmycin analogues, formal ethyl pyrrolo[3,2,1-ij]quinoline-2- carboxylate derivatives, through the less favorable 6-endo-trig cyclization mode.
Keywords: Duocarmycin; free-radicals; intramolecular cyclization; indole; pyrroloquinoline
