Eaton’s reagent efficiently catalyzed the Claisen-Schmidt condensation reaction of aryl aldehydes with aromatic
and cyclic ketones under solvent free microwave irradiation conditions to afford mono and bis-chalcone derivatives.
The present approach offers several advantages such as shorter reaction times, cleaner reactions, good yields, inexpensive
reagent and mild reaction conditions.
