Abstract

An environmentally friendly method for the synthesis of a series of novel, unsymmetrical Michler’s ketone analogues, [4-(dialkylamino)phenyl](aryl)methanones, via nucleophilic aromatic substitution of (fluorophenyl)(aryl)methanones with various amines in water­ is described. The reaction products are formed in high yields and additional purification is not required. The aqueous solvent and unreacted amines can be recycled.
