Abstract:

Copper perchlorate hexahydrate is found to be an efficient catalyst for the electrophilic substitution of indole with carbonyl compounds to prepare bis(indolyl)methane derivatives without solvent in excellent yield at room temperature.

Keywords: Bis(Indolyl)methanes, carbonyl compounds, Cu(ClO4)2.6H2O, indole, hexahydrate, perchlorate, Copper, alkanes, diindolylmethane, fluoroboric acid
