A new synthetic method to obtain the potential anticancer agent 5,6,11,12,17,18,23,24-octahydrocyclododeca[1,2-b:4,5-b0:7,8-b0 0:10,11-b0 0 0]tetraindole (CTet), starting from 1H-indole-3-carboxaldehyde and sulfamide, is described. Although a mixture of CTet and cyclic indole trimer (CTr) is formed, higher CTet/CTr ratio (4:6) and CTet yield (15%) make our protocol more favorable than those reported in the literature.

Abstract

A new synthetic method to obtain the potential anticancer agent 5,6,11,12,17,18,23,24-octahydrocyclododeca[1,2-b:4,5-b0:7,8-b0 0:10,11-b0 0 0]tetraindole (CTet), starting from 1H-indole-3-carboxaldehyde and sulfamide, is described. Although a mixture of CTet and cyclic indole trimer (CTr) is formed, higher CTet/CTr ratio (4:6) and CTet yield (15%) make our protocol more favorable than those reported in the literature. A discussion on the possible reaction mechanism is reported.
