Ketones were prepared by a modified Nef reaction using heterocyclic aryl nitroalkenes to react in a Fe-FeCl3-CH3COOH mixture with higher yield over 50% in sharp contrast with in Fe-HCl mixture with lower yield less than 30%, thus it’s cost-saving and relative environment friendly.
Heterocyclic aryl nitroalkenes, Fe-FeCl3-CH3COOH system, ketones, Nef reaction, reductive hydrolysis.
