Microwave-induced Montmorillonite-mediated synthesis of dihydropyridine

Authors : Ram Naresh Yadav a,b, Ashok Kumar Srivastava a, Indrani Banik c and Bimal Krishna Banik *d



A simple, inexpensive and efficient one-pot synthesis of 1,4-dihydropyridine derivatives using 10 wt.% of Montmorillonite K- 10 clay as catalyst is developed under microwave irradiation. A most probable mechanism is also advanced.
