Citrus Juice as an efficient, cost-effective and green catalyst employed for one-pot synthesis of a series of β-substituted enaminones through the reaction of β-dicarbonyl compounds with various primary amines in a solvent-free media on silica gel as solid surface applying grindstone technique in excellent yields and short reaction times. This procedure presented is operationally simple, practical and green.
