Original Paper


One-pot, three-component condensation reaction between (phenylsulfonyl)acetonitrile, aromatic aldehydes, and 6-aminouracil for preparation of 6,8a-dihydropyrido[2,3-d]pyrimidine derivatives has been reported. The method involves domino Knoevenagel condensation/Michael addition, and cyclization cascade. The reaction was performed in glycerol which is commercially available, inexpensive and non-toxic compound. High purity of the products, very high yields and wide scope of substrates are advantages of this protocol.
