A simple, efficient, and new method has been developed for the synthesis of 2,4,5-triarylimidazolines from aldehydes through a one-pot reaction of aldehydes in the presence of alumina-ammonium acetate under solvent–free conditions using microwave irradiation. This method is easy, rapid, one-pot and good to high-yielding reaction for the synthesis of 2,4,5-triarylimidazolines.
