Lemon Juice Catalyzed Synthesis of N-substituted Pyrrole by Paal-Knorr Reaction

Authors(3) :-Anis Ahmed Sheikh, Mohamad Asif, Sayyad Sultan Kasim

A novel, environmentally benign and efficient protocol has been introduced for the synthesis of N-substituted pyrrole through Paal-Knorr reaction catalysed by naturally available, inexpensive, nonhazardous lemon juice. During synthesis aromatic amines were condensed with 1,4 dione to obtain the pyrrole in presence of lemon juice. The use of lemon juice as catalyst for pyrrole synthesis results in good to excellent yield , shorter reaction time and easy work up procedure. Moreover the easy availability, non hazardous and eco-friendly nature are salient features of this green catalyst.
