New reactions for converting thallium compounds to nitro and azido compounds are elaborated. Applying these reactions, 4-nitroindole-3-carboxaldehyde and 1-acetyl-2,3-dihydro-7-nitroindole are now readily available in one pot reaction from indole-3-carboxaldehyde and 1-acetyl-2,3-dihydroindole, respectively. 4-Azidoindole-3-carboxaldehyde and 1-acetyl-7-azido-2,3-dihydroindole are similarly produced. Preparation of methyl 4-nitroindole-3-carboxylate is also reported.
