A free radical reaction between benzoylindoles and dimethyl malonate initiated by manganese (III) acetate is described. this free radical reaction provides a new method for the synthesis of indolo[1,2-b]isoquinolines and benzo[b]carbazoles. With meta substituent on benzoyl group, this reaction shows unusual high regioselectivity.
