Abstract

Aminolysis of epoxides has been carried out using the ionic liquid 1-ethylpyridinium trifluoroacetate ([EtPy][TFA]) as reaction medium. The reactions went smoothly under mild conditions without any catalyst to afford corresponding β-aminoalcohols in high conversions. Moreover, further enhancement in the conversions was observed when AlCl3 was used as Lewis acid catalyst.
