Original Paper


A facile parallel synthesis of 3,5-diaryl-2,6-dicyanoanilines via three-component reaction of aryl aldehydes, acetophenone derivatives, and malononitrile under thermal green solvent-free conditions in the presence of potassium carbonate and also potassium bicarbonate without using any hazardous materials is described.
