Abstract

A metal-free, mild and efficient method for the synthesis of thiazolo[3,2-a]indoles has been developed starting from indoline-2-thiones. The reaction methodology involves first the formation of thermally labile 2-(prop-2-ynylthio)-1H-indole intermediates, which undergo base-mediated intramolecular hydroamination to produce the title compounds in excellent yields.
