Revisit: Eaton's Reagent Catalyzed Synthesis of Mono and Bis-Chalcone Derivatives
Abstract:Eaton's reagent efficiently catalyzed the Claisen-Schmidt condensation reaction of aryl aldehydes with aromatic and cyclic ketones under solvent free microwave irradiation conditions to afford mono and bis-chalcone derivatives. The present approach offers several advantages such as shorter reaction times, cleaner reactions, good yields, inexpensive reagent and mild reaction conditions.
