Copper catalyzed reduction to form indolynes

Posted by naturalproductman on April 12, 2015

Stephen Buchwald and colleague have reported in JACS on a copper catalyzed C-C bond formation to make indolynes. This is a reduction reaction and they use diethoxymethylsilane (DEMS) to serve as the reductant.
