In this study, halloysite nanotubes (HNTs) as a green and available nano-mineral were used. The hydroxyl groups of HNTs were increased by acid treatment. So, the efficiency of HNTs was improved. The catalyst application of acid treatment HNTs was investigated in the synthesis of pyrrole as an important heterocycle compound. The catalyst was characterized by Fourier transforms infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR). Easy and simple method, high efficiency and eco-friendly are the advantages of this report.
