Synthesis of Diindolylmethanes (DIMs) Catalyzed by Silicotungstic Acid by Grinding Method

Received20 Nov 2009
Accepted15 Jan 2010


The synthesis of diindolylmethanes (DIMs) via the condensation of indole and aromatic aldehydes catalyzed by silicotungstic acid was carried out in 68%~98% yields at room temperature within 1~5 min by grinding. This method provides several advantages such as operational simplicity, higher yield and environment friendly.
