The product of bromination-hydrolysis of 2,3-dimethylindole, previously reported to be 3-hydroxymethyl-2-methylindole, has now been shown to be the known dimer of 2,3-dimethyl-3-hydroxyindolenine. A mechanistic interpretation of this result is presented and a simple preparation of 3-methoxyindolenines is described.
