3,4-Dihydropyrimidin-2(1H)-ones and their sulfur analogues are efficiently synthesized by the three-component condensation of β-dicarbonyl compounds, aromatic and aliphatic aldehydes, and urea or thiourea in the presence of catalytic amounts of silica sulfuric acid under solvent-free conditions in high yields. The catalyst is recyclable and can be used several times without any decrease in the products yields.
