A series of 40 derivatives of the [1,2]oxazolo[5,4-e]indazoles ring system have been prepared with goodyields using a versatile and convenient route. Annelation of the [1,2]oxazole ring on the indazole-4-onesystem was achieved by reaction of the corresponding enaminoketones with hydroxylamine hydrochloride.Derivatives of the title ring system were tested by the National Cancer Institute of Bethesda andone of them (13t) showed growth-inhibitor activity against all the 54 human tumour cell lines generallyat low micromolar concentrations.
