A CONVENIENT CATALYST-FREE SYNTHESIS OF SOME SUBSTITUTED PYRIDINE BENZAMIDES FROM ARYL ALDEHYDES
A new method of amides synthesis under catalyst-free condition has been developed by using aldehydes and aminopyridines. The amides were synthesized by using different aldehydes and aminopyridines using ethanol as a solvent and hydrogen peroxide as oxidant. The method helps in preparation of amides which were acquired in good yield within 4-5 h using conventional heating. The reaction is catalystfree. The developed method is easy, economical, and flexible.
