Microwave assisted alkylation of amines with alcohols; magnetically recoverable catalysis
Takkellapati, S. AND M. Nadagouda. Microwave assisted alkylation of amines with alcohols; magnetically recoverable catalysis. Current Organic Chemistry. Bentham Science Publishers, Ltd., Oak Park, IL, 17(20):2332-2337, (2013).
A simple, solvent free microwave assisted alkylation of amines with alcohols catalyzed by manganese oxide impregnated -Fe2O3 is reported.
A greener method for the alkylation of amines with alcohols using magnetic manganese oxide and microwave in the absence of any solvent is developed. This might be very useful for various alkylation reactions of amines. It is estimated that approximately 65% alkylations carried out in pharmaceutical industry are N-alkylation reactions.
