Rapid one-pot propargylamine synthesis
Surface plasmon excitation of gold nanoparticles on ZnO in the
presence of an aldehyde, an amine and phenylacetylene led to
rapid and selective formation of propargylamines with good yields
(50–95%) at room temperature. Plasmon mediated catalysis is the
best available route for this ternary coupling.
