The anodic oxidation of 1,2,3,4-tetrahydrocarbazole and two of its derivatives in aqueous acetonitrile at about +0.7 V (vs a standard calomel electrode and using a graphite felt anode) gave dimers having a linkage between carbon 4a of one unit and carbon 7 of the other. The oxidation of 5-methyl-5,6,7,8,9,10-hexahydrocyclohept[b]indole gave a corresponding dimer with a 5a-8’ linkage. This is a correction and an extension of our earlier work.
