MaxiPostTM is an interesting 3-fluorooxindole derivative, discovered in the late nineties of
the last century as potassium channel opener. Since then, two different research fields were
discovered: the discovery of new synthetic methods, especially asymmetric ones, and the in vitro and
in vivo tests for its use as a drug for different diseases. This mini-review aims to summarize the state
of art in both fields.
