Several biologically important 1-acetyl-3-carboxamide-β-carboline derivatives were rapidly synthesized by ultrasound-promoted amide coupling of 1-acetyl-9H-pyrido[3,4-b]indole-3-carboxylic acid with substituted aromatic amines. The major advantages of the proposed method are that use of ultrasound irradiations afforded the desired products in a drastically reduced reaction time and in excellent yields compared with conventional stirring.
