A Novel Method for the Synthesis of Dipyrromethanes Under Solvent-Free Condition

Received25 Jul 2011
Accepted05 Sep 2011


This study describes a successful approach for the synthesis of dipyrromethanes using iodine as a catalyst on grinding. This protocol does not require any solvent and carried out at lowest pyrrole/aldehyde ratio which makes this method economically and environmentally attractive. This protocol affords the products immediately with excellent yield.
