Moran, Wesley J. ; MacRory, Kerry L. ; Rodriguez, Arantxa (2012)

An unexpected oxidative rearrangement was observed when indoles substituted with 2-hydroxymalonates were subjected to typical iodination conditions. This unusual and unprecedented transformation is successful for a number of derivatives.
