Substituted N-propargyl isatins were synthesized by SN2 reaction of corresponding substituted isatins with propargyl bromide in the presence of anhydrous K2CO3 as base. We reported about study on systematically synthesis of these compounds using heating procedures under different reaction conditions, including microwave-assisted heating conditions at power of 100 W (Procedure A), conventional heating conditions in water bath at 50 °C in acetonitrile (Procedure B), and conventional heating conditions in water bath at 50 °C in DMF (procedure C). The best procedure A was deduced based on the investigations on the reaction conditions. Almost all substituted N-propargyl isatins were new, except compounds with R of H, 5-Me, 5-Cl and 5-Br substituents. The structures of the obtained compounds were confirmed by the modern spectroscopic methods.
