Abstract

An aminocatalytic method for the formation of bisindolylalkanes, e.g. I (R = Et, cyclopropyl, Ph) is described; the reaction proceeds effectively at ambient temp. in the presence of moisture and air for both aldehyde and ketone substrates and has been applied to the one-step prepn. of a series of naturally-occurring bis- and tris-indolylalkanes.
