Abstract: The Brønsted acid ionic liquid [PyN(CH2)4SO3H][p-CH3PhSO3] has been reported as an efficient catalyst for the Michael addition reaction of indoles to α,β-unsaturated ketones. Satisfactory results were obtained, with excellent yields and a simple experimental procedure. The catalyst could be recycled and reused up to three times without any noticeable decrease in the catalytic activity.
Keywords: Brønsted acid ionic liquid; β-indolylketones; Michael addition
