A novel direct oxidative coupling reaction between carbonyl groups and indoles was recently developed. Total syntheses of highly functionalized natural products, (+)-hapalindole and (+)-welwitindolinone, were achieved using the new method. The present coupling strategy makes the synthesis of indole alkaloids highly concise and practical.
