Knoevenagel Condensation by Employing Natural Catalyst - A Green Chemistry Approach
Pravin Chavan*, Pravinkumar Nagore, Kanchan Mane, Sachin Bangale
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.
