Indoles Electrophiles et Désaromatisation pour la Synthèse de Substances Naturelles
Séminaire du Dr Guillaume Vincent (ICMMO, Université Paris Sud / Paris Saclay
The nucleophilicity of the indole nucleus at C3 is well established. In contrast the electrophilic character of indoles has been less studied but is a fascinating emerging topic.We are particularly interested in the generation of sp3 carbon centers through the reaction of the C2=C3 bond of indoles.
We took advantage of the unusual electrophilic character of the indole nucleus to develop in the last years several methods to achieve the synthesis of arylated indolines related to natural products such as diazonamide A or bipleiophylline.
