Polymer-supported, palladium-catalyzed cyclization reactions effectively synthesized indolecarboxylates. Palladium-catalyzed carbon - carbon bond-forming reactions of immobilized enaminoesters followed by transesterification yielded indole 2- or 3-carboxylates with various functional groups on the benzene ring. Indolecarboxylates were efficiently cyclized via an intramolecular palladium-catalyzed amination reaction of immobilized N-substituted dehydrohalophenylalanines, and immobilized N-acetyl-dehydroalanines were efficiently converted into indolecarboxylates via tandem Heck-amination reactions.
