Bis(imino)pyridine (BIMP) Fe(II) catalyses one-pot green condensation of resorcinol, malononitrile, aromatic aldehydes and cyclohexanone

  • SAMAN DAMAVANDIEmail author


A novel, efficient and green approach for the synthesis of pyranopyridine derivatives through one-pot, four-component reaction of resorcinol, malononitrile, aromatic aldehydes and cyclohexanone using bis(imino)pyridine (BIMP) Fe(II) catalyst under solvent-free and ultrasonic irradiation is described.

Graphical Abstract

A rapid, green and efficient synthesis of 11-amino-8,9,10,12-tetrahydro-12-aryl-7H-chromeno[2,3-b]quinolin-1-ol derivatives through a multicomponent cyclocondensation of resorcinol, malononitrile, aromatic aldehydes and cyclohexanone in the presence of (4-nitro-2,6-diacetylpyridinebis(2,4,6-trimethylanil)) FeCl2 under ultrasonic irradiation has been described.
