A series of 2-hydroxypyrrolidine/piperidine derivatives (4a-h)/(4i-m) were prepared by reacting 2,3-dihydrofuran (2a)/3,4-dihydro-2H-pyran (2b) with various heterocyclic amines (3a-h), using FeCl3.6H2O as catalyst. The synthesized compounds were characterized by various physic chemical techniques such as elemental analysis and spectral analysis viz, 1H NMR, 13C NMR and Mass.
