A series of new 1,3-dihydro-3-hydroxy-3-(2-phenyl-2-oxoethyl)-2H-indol-2-ones (1a-g) and 1,3-dihydro-3-(2-phenyl-2-oxoethylidene)-2H-indol-2-ones (2a-g) were synthesised by Knoevenagel condensation of substituted indole-2,3-diones (isatins) with various acetophenones. The synthesised compounds were characterised by their physical data, elemental, IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR and mass spectral analyses and their in vitro antioxidant activity was determined by 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl free radical scavenging assay. These compounds showed moderate to good antioxidant activities as compared with the standard, ascorbic acid. The antioxidant potential of 3-hydroxy-3-substituted oxindoles (1a-g) increased in a concentration-dependent manner from 10 to 500 μg/ml with 5-fluoro and 5-methyl analogues showing maximum activity. Of 3-aroyl methylene indol-2-ones (2a-g), majority of compounds with halogen substitution at position 5 of isatin ring exhibited good antioxidant activity within a concentration range of 5-100 μg/ml and the maximum activity was observed at 20 and 25 μg/ml concentrations. Thus, our study provides evidence that some newly synthesised isatin derivatives exhibit substantial antioxidant activity at low concentrations.
