Publication Abstract: 

A simple, economical, and green approach to the synthesis of rhodanine derivatives using a tandem aldol condensation-thia-Michael addition process in aqueous diethylamine medium was described. The experiment protocol features simple operations, and the products were isolated in high to excellent yields (82–96%). As spontaneous precipitation always occurs at the end of the process, this leads to easy separation of the products via a simple filtration.
