Highly Efficient Method for Synthesis of N-Amino-2-Pyridone Derivatives in the Presence of Catalysts such as Magnesium Oxide (MgO) and Bismuth(III) Nitrate Pentahydrate (Bi(NO3)3·5H2O)
Abstract: Magnesium oxide (MgO) and bismuth(III) nitrate pentahydrate as highly effective catalysts which have catalyzed the three-component reaction of cyanoacetic acid hydrazide, aldehydes and malononitrile to prepare of the corresponding N-amino-2-pyridones. These catalysts are inexpensive and easily obtained, stable and storable, easily recycled and reused for several cycles with consistent activity.
