Synthesis of 4-(2-Nitro-1,3-diphenylpropyl)morpholine and 4-(3(2,5-Dimethylphenyl)-2-nitro-1-phenylpropyl)morpholine Compounds

S. Mahadik, M. N. Sivakumar, V. Balasubramanian


We have successfully synthesized a novel class 4-(2-nitro-1,3-diphenylpropyl)morpholine and 4-(3-(2,5-dimethylphenyl)-2-nitro-1-phenylpropyl)morpholine reaction We have also passed out the Friedel-Crafts reaction on Baylis-Hillman adducts to synthesize an array of novel (E)-1,4-dimethyl-2-(2-nitro-3-phenylallyl)benzene Baylis-Hillman reaction with excellent yields.

Keywords: concd H2SO4, Friedel–Crafts reaction, K2CO3, morpholine, THF and (E)-(2nitrovinyl)arenes paraformaldehyde
