This work describes the nitric acid catalysed synthesis of wollastonite (CaSiO3) nanoparticles (NP) from tetraethyl orthosilicate and calcium nitrate tetrahydrate. The formed calcium silicate nanoparticles were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), Powder X-ray Diffraction (PXRD), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) equipped with X-ray micro analysis. The CaSiO3 NPs showed an excellent yield (93%) towards the synthesis of quinolines via Friedlander reaction. The synthesized compound 3-dimethyl-7-nitro-9-phenyl-3,4-dihydroacridin-1(2H)-one was characterized by various spectroscopic techniques. © 2017 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
