An efficient and environmentally benign method was developed for the facile synthesis of various 2-aryl and 2-alkyl substituted benzothiazoles in moderate to good yields, using a silver-mediated redox condensation of benzothiazoles and aldehydes in water. Furthermore, this method is also applicable to prepare 2-acyl benzothiazoles.
