Converting oxazoles into imidazoles: new opportunities for diversity-oriented synthesis

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report the optimization of a neglected reaction for the rapid and direct conversion of oxazoles into N-substituted imidazoles. The utility of this microwave-promoted reaction for diversity-oriented synthesis is demonstrated in the preparation of >40 N-substituted imidazoles, including α-imidazolyl esters.
