Synthesis of indole via the alkaline reduction of o-nitro-cinnamic acid by iron is known as Baeyer indole synthesis. Considering the demand for indole, several methods similar to the Baeyer indole synthesis have been developed so far. This reaction is also known as Baeyer–Emmerling indole synthesis.
- o-nitro-cinnamic acid;
- indole derivatives;
