Original Paper


A new, practical, and convenient approach has been established for the expeditious synthesis of bioactive 2-aroyl-3,5-diarylfurans in excellent yields using a iodine-impregnated Teflon by a microwave-promoted process. The products are isolated without tedious aqueous work-up in high purity. The microwave accelerated the reaction and renders the whole synthesis into a truly eco-friendly protocol.
