Abstract

An efficient synthesis of 2,4,5-trisubstituted imidazoles is achieved by three component cyclocondensation of benzil or benzoin, aldehyde and ammonium acetate by using novel polymeric catalyst [poly(AMPS-co-AA)] under solvent-free conditions. The key advantages of this process are high yields, shorter reaction times, easy work-up, purification of products by non-chromatographic method and the reusability of the catalyst.

In this work, we report an efficient synthesis of 2,4,5-trisubstituted imidazoles by three component cyclocondensation of benzil or benzoin, aldehyde and ammonium acetate by using novel polymeric catalyst [poly(AMPS-co-AA)] under solvent-free conditions.
