Silica-supported yttrium nitrate hexahydrate (Y(NO).6HO/SiO) has been found to be an efficient and reusable catalyst for the synthesis of 2-amino-4-chromenes a one-pot aqueous three-component reaction between arylaldehydes, malononitrile and β-naphthol in high yields. This method has many appealing attributes such as excellent yields, short reactions time, reusability of the catalyst and simple work-up procedure.
