Abstract: In this paper we describe a new method for the synthesis of camalexin (1) based on the reaction of 1-(tert-butoxycarbonyl)indole-3-carboxaldehyde with methyl Lcysteinate hydrochloride, followed by oxidation and decarboxylation. Compounds 1, and intermediates 5-7 were identified by elemental analysis, 1H NMR, 13C NMR and mass spectroscopy.
