    • [Fesipmim]Cl as highly efficient and reusable catalyst for solventless synthesis of dihydropyridine derivatives through Hantzsch reaction


      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      In the present investigation, magnetic ferrite nanoparticles (ferrite NPs) were synthesized and coated with silica (ferrite@SiO2NPs) by using the sol-gel method. After that, silica propylmethylimidazolium chloride ionic liquid [Sipmim]Cl was prepared and linked with the above-prepared ferrite@SiO2NPs tosynthesize ferrite silica propylmethylimidazolium chloride [Fesipmim]Cl catalyst. The formation of [Fesipmim] Cl catalyst was confirmed by Fourier-transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy analysis. X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis confirmed the structure of ferrite NPs and ferrite@SiO2 NPs. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) evidenced the successful formation of ferrite NPs and ferrite@SiO2 NPs. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) results revealed the change in morphology of ferrite NPs, ferrite@ SiO2NPs and [Fesipmim]Cl. The magnetic properties of [Fesipmim]Cl catalyst were measured by vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM). The efficiency of the [Fesipmim]Cl catalyst was checked by using it for the synthesis of different derivatives of dihydropyridine through Hantzsch reaction via a three-component coupling reaction of substituted benzaldehydes, ethyl/ methyl acetoacetate and ammonium acetate. Theformation and structures of all the synthesized compounds were confirmed by FT-IR, 1HNMR, 13C NMR spectral analyses. The reusability of the catalyst [Fesipmim]Cl was checked up to seven cycles and found to have excellent activity up to five cycles
