Abstract

3‐Hydroxy‐3‐[(2‐ and 4‐pyridyl)methyl]‐1H‐indol‐2‐ones (1, 12) have been reduced with NaBH4/MeOH/t‐BuOH. After acidic treatment, 2‐ and 3‐substituted indoles (2, 11 and 13, 14, respectively) were obtained. The intermediates 3 and 4 of the rearrangement were isolated and the effect of the pyridylmethyl groups on the rearrangement has also been established.
