Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Cationic Au(I)-catalyzed intramolecular cycloisomerization of N-(2-alkynylphenyl)indoles proceeded efficiently in exo-selective manner, and (Z)-10-(arylidene)indolo[1,2-a]indole derivatives were obtained in moderate to high yields. Their photophysical properties were also measured.
