Then, the aldol reactions of acetone with several aldehydes with or without the catalysts 6, 7 and 8 in water were investigated.
Under these optimum conditions, the aldol reactions of acetone with various aromatic aldehydes were carried outwith catalysts 11 and 12, and also without catalyst atroom temperature for comparison.

ConclusionIn conclusion, proline amide derivatives and chiral pyridinium salts, which were prepared easily from cheap, commercially available materials, were very effective catalysts in the aldol reactions of acetone with aromatic aldehydes.
We started the study by investigation of the aldol reaction of acetone with 4- nitrobenzaldehyde in the presence of catalyst 6 to see the catalytic effect of newly synthesized proline amide derivatives in water.
