The present study concentrates on the synthesis of a series of dihydroquinazolinones by applying the green concept Microwave Assisted Organic Synthesis (MWAOS) with high atom economy. A series of phenyl-substituted N-(phenylmethylidene) anilines are coupled with isatoic anhydride using a microwave oven.
