Abstract: Polyethylene glycol was found to be an inexpensive non-toxic and effective medium for one pot synthesis of high yields of decahydroacridine-1,8-diones in the presence of ceric ammonium nitrate as the catalyst. Moreover, the solvent can be recovered and reused.
Keywords: decahydroacridine-1,8-diones - polyethylene glycol - ceric ammonium nitrate - recyclability
