An environmentally benign, method for the synthesis of indolyl(nitro) chromans from indoles and 2-aryl-3-nit:ro-2Hchromenes under catalyst-free conditions by use of an "onwater" concept is described, The salient features of the methodology are its clean, reaction conditions, the eco-friendly medium, and the easy isolation and excellent diastereoselectivities of the products,
