Abstract

[CuClpy]n in dichloromethane catalyzes the dehydrogenation of indolines to indoles by dioxygen with high selectivity. Practically no ring-cleaved products are formed. The rate equation shows first-order dependence with respect to indolines, dioxygen and the catalyst. The kinetics of the reaction suggests the formation of a mononuclear, ternary transition complex of indoline, dioxygen and the catalyst in the rate-determining step which breaks down to indole, water, and copper(I) species in subsequent reactions.
