3-Bromoindolylmaleimide and bisindolylmaleimide were synthesized from succinimide in three steps sequnence consisting of bromination, N-methylation and indole addition in the presence of magnesium and bromoethane. They were subjeced to the regioselective amination with substituted amines to provide 3-aminoindolylmaleimides, 3- amino-N-alkylated indolylmaleimides and N-alkylated bisindolylmaleimides in good yields. The resulting indolylmaleimides represent a new class of potentially bioactive compounds.

Keywords: 3-Bromoindolylmaleimide, bisindolylmaleimide, regioselective amination, reaction mechanism
