Nano-TiO2 as a novel and efficient catalyst for the synthesis of pyridine dicarbonitriles
Pyridine dicarbonitriles have been synthesized in good yields via a one-pot multi–component reaction of aldehyde, malononitrile, and thiol in the presence of nano-TiO2 as a catalyst in ethanol.
KEY WORDS: Pyridine dicarbonitriles, Multi–component reaction, One-pot, Nano-TiO2
