A Simple Four Step Synthesis and Optical Resolution of 4-Nitro-1,3,4,5-tetrahydrobenz[cd]indole, and the Syntheses of 1-Hydroxy Derivatives of 4-Nitro- and 4-Amino-1,3,4,5-tetrahydrobenz[cd]indoles

4-Nitro-1,3,4,5-tetrahydrobenz[cd]indole was synthesized from indole-3-carboxaldehyde in four steps with an overall yield of 30%. Optical resolution of its enantiomers by chiral column chromatography was successful. Syntheses of 1-hydroxy derivatives of 4-nitro- and 4-amino-1,3,4,5-tetrahydrobenz[cd]indoles are also reported.
