Abstract Friedel-Crafts alkylation of electron-rich arenes with aldehydes has been achieved in the presence of an active and selective Amberlyst-15® catalyst at the reaction temperature of 60 °C in solvent-free conditions. The catalyst exhibits a very high activity and offers the corresponding triarylmethanes in excellent yields with a high selectivity. The use of highly reactive and selective Amberlyist-15® makes this procedure simple, convenient, cost-effective, practical and environmentally friendly. This method provides an easy access to triarylmethanes in a single step using a readily available acidic ionic resin, which is a stable and easy to separate from the reaction mixture by a simple filtration technique.
