An efficient synthesis of 3,4-dihydropyrimidinones using Cerium chloride hepta hydrate as a catalyst from an aldehyde, beta-keto ester and urea in ethanol is described. Compared to the classical Biginelli reaction conditions, this new method consistently has the advantage of good yields (56–97%).and its biological activity was determined by using Disc Diffusion method.
Keywords: Biginelli reaction, dihydropyrimidinones, cerium chloride heptahydrate, one-pot condensation, Anti microbial and Anti fungal Activity, Synthesis.
