Metal-free regioselective strategy for the synthesis of 2-nitro-3-arylimidazo[1,2-a]pyridines from β-nitrostyrene and 2-aminopyridines under aerobic conditions using silica sulfuric acid (SSA) as heterogeneous catalyst has been developed. The synthetic methodology provides the title compounds with good yields under mild conditions, and complete regioselectivity is observed. Furthermore, SSA was not used previously for this transformation.
