Original Paper


In this method, we have reported the catalytic ability of saccharin as a green, eco-friendly catalyst for the multi-component efficient synthesis of 3,4-dihydropyrimidin-2-(1H)-one derivatives and 1H-pyrazolo [1,2-b]phthalazine-5,10-dione derivatives and substituted dihydro-2-oxypyrrole with excellent yields and short reaction times. This present methodology has notable benefits such as green, inexpensive and non-toxic catalyst, one-pot, environmental benign nature, solvent-free conditions, simplicity of operation with no necessity of chromatographic purification steps and eco-friendly.

Graphical Abstract

We have studied the catalytic ability of saccharin as a green, economical and environmentally benign nature for the multi-component efficient synthesis of 3,4-dihydropyrimidin-2-(1H)-ones derivatives, 1H-pyrazolo[1,2-b]phthalazine-5,10-dione derivatives and substituted dihydro-2-oxypyrrole with excellent yields and short reaction times. Green catalyst, mild, non-toxic, inexpensive, simple operational procedures, one-pot, high catalytic activity, eco-friendly, easily separated from the reaction mixture with no column chromatographic for the one-pot multi-component synthesis of these compounds are the most important advantages of this procedure.
