The first direct resolution of racemic 2-(2,3-dihydro-lH-indol-3-yl)ethanol-prepared by catalytic hydrogenation of 2-(lH-indol-3-yl)ethanol-has been accomplished by chiral simulated moving bed (SMB) chromatography. The single enantiomers were isolated as their dihydrogen phosphate salts. Single-crystal X-ray analyses were successful, revealing that the (+)-enantiomer of 2-(2,3-dihydro-lH-indol-3-yl)ethanol has the (S) configuration. Chirality 16:126-130, 2004.
