A novel photoactive solid, (2E, 6E) 4-methyl-2,6 bis(4-hydroxybenzylidene) cyclohexanone (MBHBC) was synthesized using 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde and 4-methyl cyclohexanone in the presence of boric acid and HCl as catalysts at 0°C. The purity of MBHBC was checked by HPLC (97.5%) and the structure was supported by FTIR, 1H and 13C NMR, MS and HPLC.
