    • Abstract


      An efficient and cheap synthetic approach to 3,3-di(indolyl)oxindoles and 3,3-di(pyrrolyl) oxindoles has been developed via Zn(OTf)2 catalysed indolylation and pyrrolylation of isatins. A preliminary biochemical assay of the synthesized molecules in rodent models were performed to estimate the serum glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase and malondialdehyde levels.
