The design and synthesis of a novel type of macrocyclic compounds containing indole and 1,4-dihydropyridine heterocyclic subunits is presented. The key reaction involved in the synthesis was a base-mediated dimerization of [2-(1H-indol-3-yl)ethyl]pyridinium salts. The structure of the macrocycles was unambiguously confirmed by NMR and HRMS spectroscopic and X-ray single crystal diffraction.
