We have developed an efficient, novel one-pot multicomponent protocol for the synthesis
of hexahydro-4H-indazol-4-onederivatives using β-cyclodextrin as a biomimetic catalyst in an aqueous
medium. To the best of our knowledge, the targeted molecules have not been reported in the literature
till now. The present method is very effective for our densely functionalized and diversified targeted
molecules and includes several advantages like environment benign, cost-effectiveness, short
reaction times, high yields and recyclability of the catalyst.
