(Diagram presented) Novel unsymmetrical bisindoles were synthesized by a solvent-free C-C bond-formation reaction under mild conditions. Starting from aziridines or hydroxyl precursors, indoles have been used as C-nucleophiles to form new pharmacologically interesting bisindoles via an electrophilic aromatic substitution pathway in good to excellent yields.
