A series of amino derivative of 1-indene and 9-fluorene have been synthesized from their corresponding iminium salt, generated in situ in the concentrated ethereal lithium perchlorate solution, and 1-indenyl or 9-fluorenyl anions. The yields of the reactions depend on the kind of anion. Addition of 1-indeny anion to the iminium salt gives the amino derivative of 1-indene, while addition of fluorenyl anion to the iminium salt gives 9-methylenefluorene derivatives as the major product.
