General description

Indole-3-carboxaldehyde can undergo Schiff bases condensation to form multifunctional silica nano-vehicles and magnetic nanoparticles.

Application

Reactant for preparation of:
  • Analgesic agents
  • Hypoglycemic agents
  • Tryptophan dioxygenase inhibitors pyridyl-ethenyl-indoles as potential anticancer immunomodulators
  • Antibacterial and antifungal agents
  • Antiamoebic and cytotoxic agents
  • Inhibitors of the Dengue virus protease with antiviral activity in cell-culture
  • Curcumin analogues as possible anti-proliferative & anti-inflammatory agents
  • Inhibitors of Bcl-2 family proteins
  • Inhibitors of the C-terminal domain of RNA Polymerase II as antitumor agents
  • Inhibitors of TNF-α and IL-6 with anti-tubercular activity
Indole-3-carboxaldehyde was used to prepare analogs of the indole phytoalexin cyclobrassinin with NR1R2 group. It was also used as the starting material for the synthesis of higher order indoles including isoindolo[2,1-a]indoles, aplysinopsins, and 4-substituted-tetrahydrobenz[cd]indoles.

An effective synthesis of analogs of the indole phytoalexin cyclobrassinin with NR1R2 group instead of SCH3 was developed starting from indole-3-carboxaldehyde. The target compounds were prepared by spirocyclization of 1-Boc-thioureas with the formation of isolable spiroindoline intermediates, followed by the...

Indole-3-Aldehyde is a new organic non-linear material having good second harmonic generation. The optimized molecular geometry, harmonic vibrational frequencies, infrared intensities of Indole-3-Aldehyde (I3A, C9H7NO) in the ground state were carried out by using density functional theory (B3LYP) method with...
