2-(3-Formylphenyl)imidazo[4,5-f][1,10]phenanthroline was prepared by a previously published method [1]. A mixture of 2-(3-formylphenyl)imidazo[4,5-f][1,10]phenanthroline (0.25 g, 0.77 mmol), benzil (0.16 g, 0.77 mmol), ammonium acetate (1.19 g, 15.4 mmol) and glacial acetic acid (10 cm3) was refluxed for about 2 h.
The cooled solution was filtered, diluted with water (about 60 cm3) and neutralized with concentrated aqueous ammonia. The precipitate was collected and purified by column chromatography on alumina with ethanol-toluene (1:2 v/v) as eluent to give the title compound as a pale yellow powder. Yield 0.27 g, 67.7%.
