Some new aldimines were synthesized from substituted 2-amino thiazoles and different aromatic aldehydes using L-proline as an efficient catalyst. The structure elucidation of aldimines has been made on the basis of elemental analysis and spectral data. The easy work up, higher yield and shorter reaction time are the advantages of the method.
