    One-pot reductive amination of aldehydes by the dihydropyridine in water

    , Article Scientia Iranica ; Volume 19, Issue 6 , December , 2012 , Pages 1591-1593 ; 10263098 (ISSN) Ghafuri, H ; Hashemi, M. M ; Sharif University of Technology
    An efficient, highly chemoselective and simple synthesis of secondary amines via reductive amination of aldehydes, aromatic amines and inexpensive and easily accessible Diethyl 2,6-dimethyl-1,4-dihydro-3,5-pyridinedicarboxylate (DHP) in the presence of catalytic amounts of p-toluenesulfonic acid (PTSA) in water in good to excellent yields is reported  

    Convenient synthesis of chlorohydrins from epoxides using zinc oxide: Application to 5,6-epoxysitosterol

    , Article Heteroatom Chemistry ; Volume 20, Issue 3 , 2009 , Pages 157-163 ; 10427163 (ISSN) Matloubi Moghaddam, F ; Saeidian, H ; Mirjafary, Z ; Jebeli Javan, M ; Moridi Farimani, M ; Seirafi, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Efficient synthesis of protected and unprotected chlorohydrins has been achieved by ring opening of epoxides with acetyl/benzoyl chloride and TMSCl using a catalytic amount of ZnO as a reusable catalyst. The applicability of ZnO is further extended by performing the cleavage of the natural product 5,6-epoxysitosterol with acetyl chloride. © 2009 Wiley Periodicals, Inc  

    Selective oxidation of sulfides to sulfoxides by a molybdate-based catalyst using 30% hydrogen peroxide

    , Article Catalysis Communications ; Vol. 52, issue , July , 2014 , pp. 16-21 ; ISSN: 15667367 Bayat, A ; Shakourian-Fard, M ; Hashemi, M. M ; Sharif University of Technology
    An efficient method is reported for selective oxidation of various types of sulfides to sulfoxides and sulfones in good to high yields using 30% H 2O2 in the presence of catalytic amounts of molybdate-based catalyst in acetonitrile as solvent at room temperature. The catalyst can be easily recovered and reused for seven reaction cycles without considerable loss of activity  

    Commercial zinc oxide: a facile, efficient, and eco-friendly catalyst for the one-pot three-component synthesis of multisubstituted 2-aminothiophenes via the Gewald reaction

    , Article Industrial and Engineering Chemistry Research ; Volume 51, Issue 44 , October , 2012 , Pages 14577-14582 ; 08885885 (ISSN) Tayebee, R ; Ahmadi, S. J ; Rezaei Seresht, E ; Javadi, F ; Yasemi, M. A ; Hosseinpour, M ; Maleki, B ; Sharif University of Technology
    An eco-friendly, simple, and effective protocol is developed for the synthesis of various multisubstituted 2-aminothiophenes. In the presence of a catalytic amount of ZnO (5 mol), ketones or aldehydes, malononitrile and elemental sulfur were converted to the corresponding 2-aminothiophene derivatives in moderate to high yields (27%-70%) under solvent-free conditions at 100 °C. Zinc oxide as an efficient, readily available, and reusable catalyst, showed very good catalytic activity for the synthesis of 2-aminothiophene derivatives. Thus far, little research has been reported on the Gewald reaction under solvent-free conditions; to the best of our knowledge, this is the first time that it has...
