Histidine and its decarboxylated metabolite, histamine, containing imidazole ring, play an important role for biological activity. Deuterated trifluoromethanesulfonic acid (TfOD) is one of the acid hydrogen-deuterium exchange reagents for aromatic compounds. Hydrogen-deuterium exchange of histidine and histamine with TfOD were examined in this report.

Reactions of carbocationic intermediate corresponding to aza-o-quinone methide with indoles to construct quaternary carbon center were described. Treatment of N-tosylated 2-(2-aminophenyl)propan-2-ol with iron(III) chloride provided tertiary benzylic carbocation intermediate possible to isomerize to the corresponding aza-o-quinone methide. The electron-deficient intermediate enabled to undergo nucleophilic attack by indoles, representing the first example of intermolecular formation of quaternary carbon center using aza-o-quinone methide mediated carbocation intermediate.
