Enantiopure 2,5-disubstituted 3-phenylamino-3,5-dihydro-4H-imidazol-4-one derivatives were obtained in good to excellent yields by condensation of chiral α-amino acid phenylhydrazides and triethyl orthoesters in the presence of dry acetic acid as catalyst. All reactions are performed under solvent-free and mild conditions.
