Abstract

An unprecedented modality for in situ generation of indole-ortho-quinodimethanes from 2-methylindole-based methylenemalononitriles by amine-mediated remote C(sp³)-H deprotonation was developed. These intermediates were efficiently trapped by diverse enals to provide a rapid entry to 2,9-dihydro-1H-carbazole-3-carboxyaldehyde structures via formal asymmetric [4+2] eliminative cycloaddition governed by α,α-diphenylprolinol trimethylsilyl ether catalyst.
