Aims and Objective: An efficient and practical procedure for the synthesis of
heterocyclic compounds such as quinazolines, quinoxalines and bis(indolyl)methanes was
developed using 3,5-bis(trifluoromethyl) phenyl ammonium hexafluorophosphate (BFPHP) as a
Materials and Methods: All of the obtained products are known compounds and identified by IR,
1HNMR, 13CNMR and melting points.
Result: Various products were obtained in good to excellent yields under reaction conditions.
Conclusion: The BFPHP organocatalyst demonstrates a novel class of non-asymmetric
organocatalysts, which has gained much attention in green chemistry.
