Silica bonded n-propyl-4-aza-1-azoniabicyclo[2.2.2]octane chloride (SB-DABCO): A highly efficient, reusable and new heterogeneous catalyst for the synthesis of 4H-benzo[b]pyran derivatives
The reaction of 3-chloropropyl silica with diazabicyclo[2.2.2]octane in dry acetone affords silica bonded n-propyl-4-aza-1-azoniabicyclo[2.2.2]octane chloride (SB-DABCO) as a new basic catalyst. The catalyst is used for the efficient synthesis of 4H-benzo[b]pyran derivatives via one-pot three-component reaction of cyclic ketones/1,3-diketones with aromatic aldehydes and alkylmalonates.
