One-Pot Synthesis of Coumarin-3-carboxamides Containing a Triazole Ring via an Isocyanide-Based Six-Component Reaction

A facile, efficient, and environmentally friendly approach has been developed for the diversity oriented synthesis of trifunctional coumarin-amide-triazole containing compounds. A wide variety of pharmacologically significant and structurally interesting compounds were synthesized via a one-pot, six-component, tandem Knoevenagel/Ugi/click reaction sequence from readily available starting materials in ethanol at room temperature in excellent overall yields. Substituents could be independently varied at five different positions.
