Synthesis of N-(3-Arylmethyl-2-oxo-2,3-dihydroimidazo[1,2-a]pyridin-3-yl)benzamides
A new series of imidazo[1,2-<I>a</I>]pyridin-2-one derivatives were synthesized by the reaction of 4-arylidene-2-phenyl-5(4<I>H</I>)-oxazolones and pyridin-2-amine under microwave irradiation in ethylene glycol. The starting materials were easily obtained and the operation was very convenient.
