A novel magnetite silica-coated nanoparticle-supported molybdate nanocatalyst has been prepared successfully by a simple co-precipitation method. Prepared nanocatalyst has been characterized by different techniques like Fourier Transmission Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FE-SEM) and Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDX). Further, the catalytic activity of the nanocatalyst was explored for N-formylation reactions under solvent-free conditions. Interestingly, the catalyst could be reused for 10 cycles and only 2 mol % of the catalyst was sufficient to catalyze the N-formylation reaction at 700C under solvent-free conditions.
An efficient method for ambient-temperature synthesis of a variety of 2-substituted and 1,2-disubstituted benzimidazoles from aldehyde and phenylenediamine substrates has been developed by utilizing Co(III)/Co(II)-mediated redox catalysis. The combination of only 1 mol% of Co(acac)2 and stoichiometric amount of hydrogen peroxide provides a fast, green, and mild access to a diversity of benzimidazoles under solvent-free conditions.
Under solvent free conditions and in presence of a base 3-(2-(subsituted-(trifluoromethyl)phenylamino)acetyl)-2H-chromen-2-one derivatives were synthesized by grinding technique. Structural investigations were carried out with IR studies, HRMS, 1HNMR and 13CNMR. The compounds were checked for their in vitro anticancer activities against three different human cancer cell lines viz human breast cancer cell line (MCF-7), human cervical cancer cell line (HeLa) and human oral squamous cell carcinoma (SCC-40) using SRB method. All the title compounds showed low toxicity towards non-malignant PBMC cells indicating their tumour selectivity. The compounds exhibited good in vitro anti-proliferative potency at lower concentrations against HeLa and MCF-7 cell lines and remain moderately active against SCC-40.
Hypophosphite adds to alkenes in high yields under solvent-free conditions at elevated temperature, including ,-unsaturated carboxylates. The reaction proceeds by a radical mediated pathway. Hypophosphite addition is also effective under...
Two N-methylimidazolium containing metal phosphate-oxalates (denoted SCU-40 and SCU-42) were prepared under solvent-free conditions. SCU-40 has a three-dimensional structure with a zeolitic crb topology, while SCU-42 has a layered structure...
Catalyzed with SCMNPs@CA-EA-SO3H, as a green and heterogeneous solid acid catalyst, 3,4-dihydropyrimidin-2(1H)-one and octahydroquinazolinone derivatives were obtained in high-to-excellent yields and in short reaction times via the one-pot multi-component condensation of ethyl acetoacetate or dimedone, urea, and aldehyde compounds under solvent-free conditions. More importantly, the green catalytic system could be easily collected from the reaction solution utilizing an external magnet and reused for five runs with a negligible decrease in yields and reaction rate.
