[ Vol. 10 , Issue. 2 ]


Jan K. Cermak, Karel Kolar and Vladimir Cirkva   Pages 126 - 130 ( 5 )


The microwave-assisted synthesis of N-alkylbenzamides from benzoic acid and primary aliphatic amines has been developed under solvent-free conditions. The different solid catalysts have been investigated. The suggested synthesis is environmentally friendly and excellent yields (97 - 99 %) have been reached.
