A simple method for the preparation of 1H-pyrrolo[1,2-c]imidazole derivatives is described. The title compounds 6a-d were obtained by condensation of 2-formylpyrroles 2a-d with ammonium acetate. The 2-formylpyrroles also condense with other aromatic aldehydes in the presence of ammonium acetate to afford 1H- pyrrolo[1,2-c]imidazoles 6e-h. The structure of 6h was confirmed by single crystal X-ray analysis.
