4-(3-methyl-1-oxo-2-buten-1-y1)indole (3) was efficiently synthesized from 4-cyanomethyl-l-(p-toluenesulfonyl)indole by alkylation with 2-methyl-2-buten-1-yl tosylate and by successive aerobic oxidation and deprotection of N-tosyl group. The acylindole 3 was used for a short step synthesis of clavicipitic acids (4).
