By Kavita Mote, Santosh Pore, Gajanan Rashinkar, Santosh Kambale, Arjun Kumbhar and Rajashri Salunkhe


A general, simple, efficient, cost-effective and green procedure for acylation of amines has been developed by treatment with acetic anhydride is efficiently catalyzed by using intact plant material (aqueous extract of pods of Acacia concinna fruit). Reactions proceed with very good to excellent yields at room temperature.
