6-Nitroindoline (9) was converted into 1-acetyl-5,6-aminoindoline (12) which was then transformed via selenadiazoles (1315) to the title selenadiazoloindole (4) by two alternative 3-step synthetic sequences in 38–42% overall yield from 12. The unstable 5,6-diaminoindole (16) was then obtained by reductive deselenation of 4. Fully assigned 1H, 13C and 77Se NMR spectral data for the title indole (4) and 77Se NMR spectral data for the intermediate selenadiazoles (1315) are presented.
