Microwave-assisted catalyst-free reduction of some arylidenmalononitriles under solvent-free conditions

Author(s): BagherMohammadi,HamedKazemi

This work described the reduction of some benzylidenmalonoitrile derivatives to form appropriate arylemalononitrilesvia a simple reaction between arylidenmalonoitriles and malononitrile in the presence of Na2CO3. This reaction took place under microwave irradiation and solvent-free conditions in good to excellent yields.
