Abstract

Polycyclic aromatic compounds can be synthesized from 2-benzylic- or 2-allylbenzaldehydes using a catalytic amount of In(III) or Re(I) complexes. By using this method, polycyclic aza-aromatic compounds can also be prepared efficiently. In these reactions, only water is formed as a side product.
