New routes to 3-(Arylthio)indoles: Application to the synthesis of the 3,3 '-bis(indolyl) sulfone core of the marine alkaloid echinosulfone A
2006 (English)In: Synlett: Accounts and Rapid Communications in Synthetic Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0936-5214, E-ISSN 1437-2096, no 15, 2459-2463 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A new approach to 3-(arylthio)indoles and related compounds has been developed, based on the reactions of aryl Grignard reagents or lithiated heteroaroinatics with a phenylsulfonyl-protected 3,3'-bis(indolyl) disulfide. In addition, a rational approach to the 3,3'-bis(indolyl) sulfone core of the alkaloid echinosulfone A has been accomplished, involving treatment of a 3-lithioindole with bis(phenylsulfonyl) sulfide as the key step.
