Abstract

Mn(OAc)3-mediated alkoxycarbonylation of indoles, pyrimidinones, and pyridinones with alkyl carbazates is reported. The reactions proceed through a radical process to afford regioselectively 3-carboxylated indoles, 5-carboxylated pyrimidinones, and 3-carboxylated pyridin­ones in moderate to good yields under mild reaction conditions.
