In this work, LaMnO3 was prepared by the sol-gel method followed by thermal treatment. The catalytic activity of LaMnO3 in the synthesis of 2-phenylbenzo[d]imidazo[2,1-b]thiazole (2-PIT) from 2-aminobenzothiazole and acetophenone was strongly influenced by the calcination temperature. The highest efficiency of samples synthesized at 800C was approved due to Lewis acid and oxygen vacancy sites properties which were confirmed through NH3-TPD and H2-TPR. Furthermore, the stability and reusability of the sample demonstrated the potential of LaMnO3 heterogeneous catalysts in organic synthesis applications.

Keywords: LaMnO3, acetophenone, 2-aminobenzothiazole, organic synthesis.
