A one-pot, three-component reaction of an isatin and kojic acid with an active methylene compound such as
ethyl cyanoacetate, methyl cyanoacetate and malononitrile in methanol using catalytic amount of DABCO to give 2'-
amino-6'-(hydroxymethyl)-8'H-spiro[indoline-3,4'-pyrano[3,2-b]pyran]-2,8'-diones in good to excellent yields under
reflux conditions, is described.
Keywords: Isatin, kojic acid, malononitrile, multi-component reaction, pyrano[3, 2-b]pyranone, pyranopyranone.
