13C signal assignments of 3-ethyl-1-methylindole (1), 1-methyl-3-phenylindole (3), 1,3-dimethyl-2-phenylindole (5), 1-methyl-2,3-diphenylindole (10), 1,5-dimethyl-2,3-diphenylindole (12), 7-methoxy-2,3-diphenylindole (13), 7-methoxy-4-methyl-2,3-diphenylindole (14) and 1-(7-methoxy-4-methyl-2,3-diphenyl-6-indolyl)-1-(7-methoxy-2,3-diphenyl-4-indolyl)methane (15) are reported. Contrary to an earlier report on monophenylindoles, the para carbons of the phenyl groups of 3, 5, 10 and 12-15 resonate at lower frequencies than their ortho carbons. The methoxy carbon at position 7 in 15 absorbs at a higher frequency than other similar carbons in 13-15 owing to steric inhibition to resonance.
