What is it about?

Spiro[cyclohexane-1,3’-indoline]-2,2’-diones were easily prepared in good to high yields by the oxidation of N-aryl-N-methyl-2-oxocyclohexane-1-carboxamides in one pot with a short reaction time. The spiroindolinediones could be important for the total synthesis of natural products.

Why is it important?

A simple and convenient one-pot synthesis of spiro[cyclohexane-1,3’-indoline]-2,2’-diones 2a-j was demonstrated. The spiro compounds would be important for the total synthesis of several natural products as the starting material. The scope of the reaction using the N-aryl-2-oxocycloalkane-1-carboxamides and synthetic applications using the spiro compounds are currently underway.
