Indazole derivatives display a broad variety of biological activities.
Indazoles are rare in nature. The alkaloids nigellicine, nigeglanine, and nigellidine are indazoles. Nigellicine was isolated from the widely distributed plant Nigella sativa L. (black cumin). Nigeglanine was isolated from extracts of Nigella glandulifera.
The Davis–Beirut reaction can generate 2H-indazoles.
- indazole-3-carboxylic acid
- Having a carboxylic acid group on carbon 3. Can be further modified to lonidamine.
- Indole, an analog with only one nitrogen atom in position 1.
- Benzimidazole, an analog with the nitrogen atoms in positions 1 and 3.
- Simple aromatic rings
- 7-Nitroindazole, an indazole-based nitric oxide synthase inhibitor
