In this study, multi component Hantzsch reaction was carried out between various Aromatic Aldehyde with Dimedone,Ethyl acetateand ammonium acetate to produce polyhydroquinolinederivatives under solvent-free conditions at 110oC by a (Zinc oxide nanocatalyst) as effective Lewis acid. The remarkable advantages offered by this method compared with other methods are a green catalyst, simple work-up procedures, fast reactions, a long high yields.
