3-Phenyl- and 3-alkyl-3-hydroxyindolines were synthesized by intramolecular Barbier reaction of phenyl and alkyl N-(2-iodophenyl)-N-methylaminomethyl ketones with n-BuLi, which were easily prepared from N-methyl-2-iodoaniline and bromomethyl ketones. The treatment of the indolines with acid gave the corresponding indoles in quantitative yields.
