An environmentally friendly method for the construction of C(sp2)–CN bond on water has been described, and (Z)-2-(2-oxoindolin-3-ylidene)-2-arylacetonitriles were synthesized by using CeCl3· 7H2O as a catalyst. The reaction offers access to alkenyl nitriles in good-to-excellent yield. The investigations will be beneficial to reduce the use of toxic organic solvents and explore the efficient catalytic processes on water.doi:10.6084/m9.figshare.7583129 fatcat:x2avljvge5bgbm45kn5wl3mzlq
