A convenient method for the synthesis of thiazoles and aminothiazoles by treatment of phenacyl bromides with thioamides/thiourea in the presence of tetrabutylammonium hexafluorophosphate (Bu4NPF6) at room temperature was developed. The products having high yields were formed rapidly (within 15 min). The method is simple, rapid and practical, generating thiazole derivatives in excellent isolated yields. The structures of the newly synthesized products were identified by FT-IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR spectroscopy and elemental analysis data.
