  • ISSN : 0379-4350



Polyaniline/SiO is an efficient catalyst for the synthesis of tetrahydrobenzo[b]pyran derivatives from a one-pot, three component, condensation of aldehydes, malononitrile and dimedone at room temperature. This protocol has several advantages such as high yield, a simple work up procedure, low toxicity and easy recovery and reusability of the catalytic material. The catalyst has been readily prepared and characterized by means of thermal analysis (TG-DTA), X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR).
