7-(Imidazolidin-1-ylmethyl)quinoline-8-ol, an N-substituted imidazolidine, was synthesized in a one-step reaction between 1,3,6,8-tetraazatricyclo[]dodecane (TATD) and 8-hydroxyquinoline. Obtaining this substance enhanced the scope of possibilities in the synthesis of unsymmetrically N,N-disubstituted imidazolidines. 1H-NMR spectral studies revealed that this type of substance does not undergo ring-chain tautomerism.
