Condensation of 2-hydroxytryptamine (1) with dimethyl 4-ethyl-4-fomylpimelate (2) yielded the stereoisomeric oxindoles, 8A, 8B, 8C, and 8D which were separated and their stereochemistry assigned. The compounds 8A-D or their N-methyl derivatives, 5A-D could be selectively reduced to the oxindole-amines 9 or 3 by treatment with phosphorus oxychloride followed by sodium borohydride but the amines were isomerised under the reaction condition.
