Thermolysis of 3-hydroperoxy-3-methyl-2-phenyl-3H-indole 1 in dimethyl sulfoxide showed chemiluminescence and 3-hydroxy-3-methyl-2-phenyl-3H-indole 2 was obtained whereas in methanol 1 was converted to o-benzamidacetophenone. Deoxygenation occurred to give 2-phenylskatole on the termolysis of 1 in benzene.
