Poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) has been used as a sustainable, non-volatile, and environmentally friendly reaction
solvent for synthesis of functionalized anilines and benzenes via the reaction of malononitrile and β-ketoester derivatives
in the presence of activated acetylenes at 80o C. No additional solvent and catalyst are required.
Keywords: Activated acetylenes, functionalized anilines and benzenes, malononitrile, PEG, β-ketoester, green chemistry, Catalyst-Free, solvent-free techniques, Aromatic amines, cyanoanilines
