Abstract

One-pot synthesis of 2-phenylimidazo[1,2-α]pyridines from acetophenone, [Bmim]Br3 and 2-aminopyridine under solvent-free conditions in the presence of Na2CO3, gave the corresponding 2-phenylimidazo[1,2-α]pyridines in excellent yields ranging from 72% to 89%.
Keywords: imidazo[1,2-α]pyridine; aromatics; 2-aminopyridine; [Bmim]Br3 imidazo[1,2-α]pyridine; aromatics; 2-aminopyridine; [Bmim]Br3
