SOLVENT-FREE SOLID SUPPORTED AND PHASE TRANSFERRED CATALYZED SYNTHESIS OF BENZANILINE DERIVATIVES USING MICROWAVE IRRADIATIONAbstract
In this study, solvent-free and phase transfer catalysis conditions coupled with microwave irradiation and their advantages in synthesis of N-alkylation of primary anilines were reported. In this way two different microwave processing techniques were compared in terms of reaction yields. Consequently, microwave irradiation significantly reduced reaction times compared to traditional heating methods. Particularly synthesis by solvent-free solid supported microwave irradiaton was found more eco-friendly and had higher reaction efficiency against to phase transfer catalysis condition. Organic reactions under solvent-free conditions is advantageous because of enhanced selectivity, efficiency and more importantly, toxic and volatile solvents are avoided. So that this eco-friendly green approach might be applied to the rapid assembly of various alkylation reactions.
