Cyanuric chloride is shown to be an extremely efficient catalyst for the synthesis of β-enaminoesters from β-ketoesters under solvent-free conditions by grinding in a mortar with pestle at 25 °C. A short reaction time, an inexpensive and easily available catalyst, mild reaction conditions and excellent yields of the products are attractive features of this methodology.
