A solvent mediated regioselective C—H iodination of pyrrolo[1,2-a]quinoxaline with N-iodo-succininide (NIS) has been developed. 1-Iodopyrrolo[1,2-a]quinoxalines and 3-iodopyrrolo[1,2-a]quinoxalines could be selectively synthesized by using CHCl3 and N,N-dimethylformamide (DMF) as solvents, respectively. Furthermore, 1,3-dibromopyrroloquinoxalines were obtained as the main products by the bromination of pyrrolo[1,2-a]quinoxaline with N-bromo-succinimide (NBS). The method features simple and mild reaction conditions, good regioselectivity, broad substrate scope, and gram-scale synthesis. In addition, the further transformation of halogenated pyrrolo[1,2-a]quinoxaline products has also been investigated through palladium and iodine catalyzed C—X (X=C, S) bond formation reactions.
