Abstract

A simple, green method for condensation of substituted aromatic aldehydes with malanonitrile catalyzed  by  extract of henna leaves at room temperature in absence of any chemical reagents. The products were purified by recrystallisation method and were identified along with their by spectroscopic methods: NMR and IR spectroscopy.
