The oxazole and indole based heterocyclic photochromic fulgides were synthesized from their corresponding fulgenic acid derivatives by clay catalysed microwave irradiation methodology. Improved yields of fulgides were observed by the microwave irradiation method as compared other chemical methods employed so far. The proportions of clay (montmorillonite KSF) and isopropenyl acetate play a key role in increasing the yields of fulgides.
