A simple, efficient, and environmentally friendly method has been developed for the synthesis of a series of tricyclic fused pyrazolopyranopyrimidines via a one-pot three-component reaction of barbituric acids, aromatic aldehydes, and 3-methyl-5-pyrazolone in the presence of SBA-Pr-SO3H. SBA-15 mesoporous silica material functionalized with propyl sulfonic acid groups was used as a heterogeneous Brønsted acid catalyst with hexagonal structure, high surface area, thick walls, and large uniform pores. All reactions were performed under reflux conditions in water in the presence of a catalytic amount of SBA-Pr-SO3H. High yields, mild reaction conditions, short reaction times, and simple work-up procedures are some advantages of this method. The antimicrobial activities of the synthesized compounds were also evaluated and some products exhibited significant antibacterial activities at low concentrations.
