Abstract

Attempts of direct bromination of 1,3-dimethylimidazolium salts with bromine were futile. A tribromide or a carbene–lithium–THF adduct were received instead. The quaternary 2-bromo compound was obtained by methylation of 2‑bromo‑1‑methylimidazole and subsequent ion metathesis, which was converted to the corresponding 2-cyano and 2-azido derivatives. Typical reactions of the latter include a dipolar cycloaddition and the Staudinger reaction. Crystal structures of eight compounds have been determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction.
