Environmentally Benign Green Synthesis and Characterization of 4-Methyl-2, 6-Naphthyridines under Microwave Irradiation
A microwave-promoted new easy, efficient, clean and environmentally benign method for the synthesis of 4-methyl-2, 6- naphthyridineand its derivatives from 2-(4-cyano-3-pyridyl) propionitrile has been developed. The desired products were isolated in excellent yields and high purity under eco-friendly conditions. The synthesized compounds were characterized by the IR, UV-Visible and 1H-NMR spectral analyses along with elemental analysis.
