The allylation of indirubin produced the expected indolic N′-allylindirubin and N,N′-diallylindirubin derivatives in moderate yields, together with the corresponding N-substituted isatin products. At higher temperatures, the base-initiated reaction with allylic halides yielded spiroindolinepyrido[1,2-a]indolediones in a one-pot cascade reaction sequence with yields of up to 70%. These readily accessed, new spiro compounds represent the first reported examples of indirubin participating in...[Show more]
