Ammonium carbamate and ammonium hydrogen carbonate were used as very effective solid ammonia sources to prepare different (aminoalkyl)naphthols and (aminoalkyl)quinolinols in ethanol and water as solvents under microwave conditions in modified three-component Mannich reactions. The products were obtained in excellent yields in one-pot reactions.
