Abstract

This work described one pot syntheses of polysubstituted 2,6- dicyanoaniline and 2-(3-Oxo-1,3-diarylpropyl) malononitrile derivatives in the presence of MgO nanoparticles (NPs) under grinding conditions and microwave irradiation, respectively. The simple experimental procedure includes shorter reaction times, higher yields, lower cost and environmental friendliness. Other remarkable features are reusability of catalyst, MgO NPs can be reused at least five times without any obvious change in its catalytic activity.
