oa South African Journal of Chemistry - A greener method towards the synthesis of 1,3-diarylimidazolium tetrafluoroborates : research article

A new strategic method for the synthesis of 1,3-diarylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate salts is illustrated herein. A solvent-free approach was employed in the synthesis of the diimines which are precursors in the preparation of the imidazolium salts. The reaction proceeds faster, cleaner and in a better yield than previously reported methods.
