Applications
Reactant for synthesis of oxazino[4,3-a]indoles via cascade addition-cyclization reactions, reactant for preparation of indolecarboxamides as cannabinoid CB1 receptor antagonists, reactant for preparation of indole-3-propionic acids as antiinflammatory and analgesic agents, reactant for Friedel-Crafts acylation with nitrobenzoyl chloride. Indole ring system is an important building block or intermediate in the synthesis of many pharmaceutical agents. It is formed during the Fischer indolization of ethyl pyruvate 2-[2-(methanesulfonyloxy)-4-methyl]phenylhydrazine. · Reactant for oximation reactions

Solubility
Soluble in methanol, and dichloromethane. Insoluble in water.

Notes
Store away from strong oxidizing agents. Keep container tightly closed. Store in cool, dry conditions in well sealed containers.
