Product Description

3-Acetylindole is a substituted indole and a reactant in the first step of multiple biological synthesis applications. Indoles, especially 3-acetylindole derivatives, possess a wide variety of biological activities. Many biological molecules, from Antibacterial agents against Staphylococcus to anti-HIV synthesis agents like N-arylsulfonyl-3-acetylindoles, use 3-acetylindole as a starting reagent. They can react with aromatic aldehydes to produce chalcones, which are intermediates for biologically active heterocyclic compounds. 3-Acetylindole is also the reactant for the synthesis of inhibitors that are used with hepatitis protease and nuclear factor kappa-light-chain enhancer of B cells (NF-κB).
