Heteropoly acids are reported as efficient catalysts for the microwave-assisted synthesis of 3-benzothiazolo and 3-benzothiazolino coumarin from o-aminothiophenol derivatives with 3-acetly and 3-cyanochromen-2-one in good to excellent isolated yields (73-95%). This study suggests new techniques for the synthesis of chromene derivatives using an inexpensive and easily available catalyst, a simple procedure, short reaction time, and good to excellent yields of the products.

Keywords: o-Aminothiophenol, 3-Benzothiazolino coumarin, 3-Benzothiazolo coumarin, Heteropoly acid
