During the course of experiments to explore and develop cyclization reactions of indolic systems, a number of unusual rearrangement reactions were discovered, and are reported in this paper. We describe routes to 4-substituted (methylsufanylmethyl)indole derivatives, and a simple route to a cyclopropanone derivative of a tetrahydro-ß-carboline. ©ARKAT-USA, Inc.
