1H-Indol-3-yl acetates are very important indole derivatives, which can be found in many bioactive compounds and natural products. In this work, 1H-indol-3-yl acetates were efficiently prepared via α-imino gold carbenes generated by gold-catalyzed reactions of 2-alkynyl arylazides. A very simple and general method for the synthesis of 1H-indol-3-yl acetates was provided after examining the substrates scope.

Key words: 2-alkynyl arylazides, tandem reactions, carboxylic acids, 1H-indol-3-yl esters
