Rhodanine derivatives are highly valuable heterocycles in drug discovery. Here, we developed aldol reaction of N-substituted rhodanines and aromatic aldehydes on water. The reaction was performed at room temperature affording the products in good to high yield. This synthetic protocol uses simple experimental procedures, catalyst-free, and avoids the use of highly toxic solvents.
