(This article belongs to the Section Organic Synthesis)
Ethyl 2-[2-(4-nitrobenzoyl)-1H-indol-3-yl]acetate was prepared in good yield and characterized by the aza-alkylation/intramolecular Michael cascade reaction of (E)-ethyl 3-[2-(tosylamino)phenyl]acrylate with 2-bromo-4′′-nitroacetophenone, followed by desulfonative dehydrogenation with 1,8-diazabicyclo[5.4.0]undec-7-ene (DBU) The structure of the newly synthesized compound was determined using 1H-,13C-NMR, IR and mass spectral data.
