Amreen Khanum and Mohamed Afzal Pasha*
Synthesis of some important and functionalized benzimidazoles and imidazolines from aromatic aldehydes and ophenylenediamine or ethylenediamine using catalytic p-TSA under neat thermal condition is reported. The method is simple, efficient and the products are obtained in excellent yield in very short durations.
Keywords: Benzimidazoles; imidazolines; araldehydes; p-TSA; thermal condition.
