An anti-oncological active spiro-oxindole 7 was synthesized regioselectively via a [3+2]-cycloaddition reaction of azomethine ylide to exocyclic olefinic linkage of 4-piperidone 6, exhibiting properties against diverse tumor cell lines including leukemia, melanoma and cancers of the lung, colon, brain, ovary, breast, prostate, and kidney. Compound 7 crystallizes in the monoclinic system and P21/c space group with four molecules in the unit cell. The structure was also studied by AM1, PM3 and DFT techniques. DFT studies support the stereochemical selectivity of the reaction and determine the molecular electrostatic potential and frontier molecular orbitals.
