A novel, ecofriendly, one pot solvent free method for the synthesis of 4-aryl-7,7-dimethyl-1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8-octahydroquinazoline-2-one/thione-5-one derivatives is described which devoids the use of any organic solvents and auxiliaries. All the synthesized compounds were screened for their in vitro antibacterial activity against standard strains of Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
