Oxindoles are credited to have a wide range of applications and are reported to exhibit an extensive range of biological effects which include the antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial, antiproliferative, anticancer, anti-inflammatory antihypertensive and the anticonvulsant activities. The chemistry of oxindoles is very interesting and the biological activity of the oxindoles and their derivatives has made them very important in synthetic organic and medicinal chemistry. This review provides insight into various applications of oxindoles and their derivatives to date.
