Abstract

A facile synthesis of 2‐vinylindoles is detailed, starting from the corresponding indolecarbinols. The utility of the newly synthesized 2‐vinylindoles in the preparation of novel [c] annellated carbazoles is demonstrated. 1‐(1‐Methyl‐2‐indolyl)‐1‐(N‐methyl‐2′‐pyrrolyl)ethene (3c) has also a 2‐vinylpyrrole partial structure. However, in the Diels‐Alder reaction of 3c, the exclusive formation of [c] annellated indoles was observed.
