Abstract: A practical protocol for the preparation of (5Z)-2-alkylthio-5-arylmethylene-1-methyl-1,5-dihydro-4H-imidazol-4-one derivatives is reported. The new compounds were obtained in good yield and stereoselectivity in two steps, namely a solvent-free Knoevenagel condensation under microwave irradiation, followed by an S-alkylation reaction with various halogenoalkanes.
Keywords: 1,5-dihydro-4H-imidazol-4one; Knoevenagel condensation; microwave irradiation; S-alkylation
