What is it about?
A mild and efficient methodology for the synthesis of oxy- genated carbazoles from diarylamines under non-acidic con- ditions was developed, based on a palladium-catalyzed, mi- crowave-assisted double C–H bond activation process. This new protocol was successfully applied to the synthesis of three naturally occurring carbazoles, namely murrayafoline A, 2-methoxy-3-methylcarbazole, and glycozolidine.
Why is it important?
The scope of the reaction was also expanded to include the syn- thesis of benzo fused carbazolequinones.
