Abstract: Methyl indolenines (4a-c) and(5a-c) were prepared in high yield by a Fischer indole synthesis reaction of o,m-tolylhydrazine hydrochlorides (1a-b) with isopropyl methyl ketone (2) and 2-methylcyclohexanone (3) in acetic acid at room temperature. o,p- Nitrophenylhydrazines (1c-d) were reacted with 2-methylcyclohexanone (3) in acetic acid at reflux to give nitroindolenines (5d-e), while the attempted reactions of o,p-nitrohydrazines with isopropyl methyl ketone (2) in acetic acid were not successful. Compounds(1c-d) were reacted with isopropyl methyl ketone (2) in acetic acid/HCl to give 2,3,3-trimethyl-5-nitro-indolenine (4e) and 2,3,3-trimethyl-7-nitroindolenine (4d).
Keywords: 3H-indole; indolenine; Fischer’s synthesis method; acetic acid
