    • Abstract


      Molecular iodine in the presence of potassium carbonate has been found to be an efficient and ecofriendly catalyst for the synthesis of polysubstituted dicyanoanilines from aldehydes, acetone and malononitrile under solvent-free thermal condition. The experimental procedure is simple, includes shorter reaction times (less than 10 min) and results in excellent yield of the products.
