    • Abstract


      A number of mercurated indoles were prepared. Their spectroscopic data (UV,ir,1H-NMR and13C-nmr) are reported. Our results contradict certain data appearing in previous reports on similar compounds. When heated in acetic acid mercurated compounds decomposed, although the products formed were not identical with those obtained earlier from the same substrates by the action of thallium(III) acetate in acetic acid. Reaction of l-methylindole-3-mercuriacetate with styrene in the presence of lithium tetrachloropalladate furnished a product which was tentatively assigned the structure 9-methyl-1,3-diphenyl-1, 2, 3, 4-tetrahydrocarbazole.
