A one-pot four-component reaction of aldehydes, ethyl acetoacetate/5,5-dimethyl-1,3-cyclohexanedione, ethyl acetoacetate and ammonium acetate in the presence of 10 mol% of ZnO as a heterogeneous catalyst for the synthesis of corresponding 1,4-dihydropyridine and polyhydroquinoline derivatives via the Hantzsch condensation is described. The present methodology offers several advantages such as simple procedure, excellent yields, and short reaction time.

Keywords: 1,4-Dihydropyridine and polyhydroquinolin, One-pot synthesis, Hantzsch condensation, Zinc oxide
