(Chemical Equation Presented) Isomerization between two isomers of 1,2-disubstituted 3-aminoindenes occurs via the rearrangement of indene frameworks. In contrast to previous rearrangements of indene derivatives, which occur under high-temperature conditions or the irradiation of light, this rearrangement proceeds at room temperature without UV light irradiation. An amino group at the 3-position plays an important role to accelerate the rearrangement under mild conditions.
