Abstract

A new efficient and practical method for the room-temperature reduction of aromatic nitro compounds employing FeSO4. 7H2O, NaBH4, H3PW12O40 system in H2O under mild conditions is reported. The method is simple, inexpensive, easily scaled-up and applicable for the large scale preparation of different substituted anilines.
