Graphical Abstract:


Amidoalkyl-2-naphthol is one of the vital synthetic intermediates which occupy an imperative position in medicinal chemistry due to its amazing biological, pharmacological as well as industrial and synthetic applications. Owing to its diverse pharmaceutical activities, hundreds of scientific literature are available, signifying the efficient synthesis of this intermediate using various catalysts. Most of these literature methods suffer from low yield and harsh reaction conditions that further ignited the researcher to explore for another green catalyst and fresh methodologies. This review summarizes the last five years progress in the catalytic synthesis of 1-amidoalkyl-2-naphthols using various heterogenous, homogenous and nanocatalysts along with their mechanism of action. Various advantages like green synthesis, atom economy, clean reaction profile and catalyst recovery are discussed which facilitate the scientist to probe and stimulate the study on this scaffold. In the end, the catalysts and reactions condition are organized into the tables for swift at a glance understanding of different catalysts used with their yield and time taken for the synthesis.

Keywords: Amidoalkyl-naphthol, green catalyst, heterogenous catalyst, homogenous catalyst, nanocatalyst, multicomponent reactions.
