A dimerization of N-methylindoles by trimethylsilyl bromide promoted C—C bond cross coupling reactions is described. A series of 2,3'-linked indolylindolines are smoothly installed under mild reaction conditions with up to 95% yields. The gram scale reactions demonstrate the practicality of this protocol. The UV-vis absorption and fluorescence spectra properties of target products are preliminarily studied.

Key words: indole, dimerization, cross-coupling, indolylindoline
