The cycloaddition reactions of o-indoloquinone 4 to azadienes are described. With 1-azadiene 2, quinone 4 works as a dienophile to give the directly aromatized cycloadduct 6. In contrast, when 2-azadiene 3 is used, the cycloaddition occurs with CO-4, indicating that this system functions as a heterodienophile.
