A novel method for the synthesis of 2-Hydroxy chalcones via Claisen-Schmidt is introduced using Silicagel supported piperidine as an alternative base. The reaction is clean with excellent yield, shorter reaction time and reduces the use of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and Its electrochemical reduction behaviour explained. The structures of the synthesized compounds were confirmed by IR, mass spectroscopy and elemental analysis.
