Some imine derivatives (1a7d) were synthesized using a rapid and an environmentally friendly method with reaction of aromatic aldehydes (ad) and aromatic amines (17) (in 1 : 1 molar ratio) in the presence of -ethoxyethanol as a wetting reagent (2 drops) under solvent-free conditions using microwave heating.
