Abstract

Catalyst free conjugate addition of reactive hetero aromatics (pyrrole and indoles) to nitro alkenes under solvent free condition is described. This method provides several advantages, such as operational simplicity, solvent-free conditions and good yields of products. Also it is environmentally friendly and more cost effective alternative to existing protocols.
