A catalytic synthesis of calixpyrroles and N-confused calixpyrroles by reaction of dialkyl or cycloalkyl ketones with pyrrole was performed using Preyssler, sodium30-tungsto pentaphosphate, [NaP5W30O110]14- and Wells-Dawson heteropolyacids as acidic catalysts. The process occurred under mild, eco-friendly and environmental friendly conditions and as a reusable, green catalyst at room temperature for 6 hours. The results showed that the yield for this synthesis is excellent with the use of Preyssler and Wells-Dawson type tungstophosphoric heteropolyacid, H6[P2W18O62], catalysts. The synthesis reaction of calixpyrroles and N-confused calixpyrroles was developed using different solvents and the best yields were obtained in chloroform.
