An Efficient and Inexpensive Synthesis of 2-Substituted Benzimidazoles in Water Using Boric Acid at Room Temperature

Received13 Jun 2011
Accepted13 Aug 2011


2-Substituted benzimidazoles have been synthesized in a one-pot reaction from o-phenylenediamine and aldehydes in the presence of boric acid in water at room temperature. The method was proved to be eco-friendly, convenient and the products were isolated with good yields.
