Microwave Assisted Robinson’s Annulation: Synthesis of some
novel cyclohexenones under solvent free conditions
By Priya V Frank, Balakrishna Kalluraya and Shobhitha Shetty
A simple and environment friendly method for the preparation of substituted cyclohexenones by
the well known Robinson’s annulation technique is reported. In this method the yields are high
compared to the conventional methods carried out in solvent phase. The duration of the reaction
is also considerably reduced.
Keywords: Cyclohexenone; microwave irradiation; Robinsons annulations.
