Reduction of 3-hydroxy-3-(3-hydroxyiminobutyl)oxindole (II) and its 1-methyl analog (I) with sodium borohydride afforded the corresponding pyrido[2,3-b]indoles. On the other hand, reduction of I with sodium borohydride in the presence of cobalt ion gave 3-hydroxy-3-(3-hydroxybutyl)-1-methyloxindole (VIII).
