      Indole Nomenclature  Bookmark   

Take a look at this Indole chemistry article:

A Facile Preparation of 1-(6-Hydroxyindol-1-yl)-2,2-dimethylpropan-1-one
Chem. Pharm. Bull., Vol. 51, 98-99 (2003)      

Isn't even the title itself a contradiction? If there is a carbonyl carbon attached to the indole nitrogen, isn't that per definition an amide, rather than a ketone (as the nomenclature ...propan-1-one indicates)?

Also, look at the title in the top left corner of the HTML abstract page, is that a machine translation of the Japanese expression for "Detailed Table of content" perhaps? crazy
