1-Hydroxyindoles are sensitive to acids and undergo four types of competing reactions; dehydroxylation, nucleophillic substitution, dimerization, and formation od hexacyclic dimer. The direction of the reaction seems to be determined depending on the subtle balance of substrate structures, acids, and reaction conditions. Structures of variety of products are unequivocally determined by X-ray single crystallographic analyses and chemical correlations.
