Abstract

Indoles, including tricyclic derivatives, are produced by cyclisations of aryl radicals onto vinyl halides followed by elimination of halide radical and tautomerism of the resulting product; the aryl radicals are produced using clean methodology either by reaction of iodide ions with arenediazonium salts or by reaction of phosphorus-centred radicals with aryl iodides.
