Abstract

Mild heating of the ring-expanded N-heterocyclic Carbenes 7-Mes and 6-Mes results in intramolecular insertion of the carbene into an ortho-methyl C-H bond. In the presence of traces of acid, the resulting products ring-open to afford N-alkyl indoles. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
