We have synthesized 2-(p-methoxybenzylamino)-1-(p-R phenacyl)pyridinium bromides by alkylation of 2-R-(Pmethoxybenzylamino)pyridine with substituted phenacyl bromides. Using spectral methods we have shown that the title compounds exist in the form of 1, 2-diaryl-2-hydroxy-2, 3-dihydroimidazo[l, 2-alpyridinium salts. We have studied their properties and suggest an alternative synthesis route.
