Abstract

The synthesis of dioxindole derivatives by alkali treatment of the condensation products from substituted anilines and ethyl or methyl ester of oxomalonic acid in the absence of oxygen is known as the Martinet reaction. The dioxindole produces isatins on oxidation. This reaction is useful for the preparation of oxindole derivatives.

Keywords:

  • oxomalonic acid ;
