Approaches to the Generation of 2,3-Indolyne

Several unsuccessful attempts to generate and trap 1-phenylsulfonyl-2,3-indolyne (4) from 2-lithio-3-bromo-1-phenylsulfonylindole (9) and 2-lithio-3-iodo-1-phenylsulfonylindole (12), generated by different methods, are described. The remarkable stability of 9 and 12 towards elimination parallels previous observations involving the stability of 2-lithio-3-bromobenzo[b]furan and other ortho-metalated halogenated five-membered ring heterocycles.
