The palladium-catalyzed homocoupling of 5-iodo-3,3-dimethyl-2-phenyl-3H-indole afforded 3,3,3′,3′-tetramethyl-2,2′-diphenyl-3H,3′H-5,5′-biindole in 65% yield. This previously unreported compound was fully characterized by NMR, IR and HRMS data and its optical properties were studied by UV/vis and fluorescence spectroscopy. View Full-Text
