Here, we prepare an Au NP decorated dithiocarbamate functionalized boehmite (γ-AlO(OH)@C-NHCS2H·AuNPs). This stepwise synthetic method gives an efficient, cost-effective, and green heterogenous Au-based nanocatalyst for the A3-coupling preparation of the biologically essential propargylamines. Different characterization methods, including FT-IR, XRD, SEM, TEM, EDX spectra, and elemental SEM-mapping, were employed to investigate the structure of the manufactured γ-AlO(OH)@C-NHCS2H·AuNPs. Then we used the prepared composite as a heterogeneous gold-based nanocatalyst for the one-pot A3-coupling preparation of propargyl amines by reacting a variety of aldehydes, amines, and phenylacetylene which exhibited promising results.
