Microwave-assisted synthesis of some 5(6)-nitro-1H-benzimidazoles and their hydrazide derivatives
A series of 5(6)-nitro-1H-benzimidazole and their hydrazide derivatives were synthesized starting from iminoester hydrochloride and 4-nitro-o-phenylenediamine under microwave irradiation. The structure of all synthesized compounds was confirmed by IR, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, ESI-MS spectroscopy and elemental analysis.
KEY WORDS: Benzimidazole, Iminoester hydrochloride, Microwave irradiation, Hydrazine hydrate
