A simple and highly efficient method for a three-component condensation of benzil, aldehydes and ammonium acetate under microwave irradiation in the presence of glacial acetic acid in solvent-free condition was carried out to afford the corresponding 2-substituted-4,5-diphenylimidazole derivatives in high yields. The remarkable advantages offered by this method are inexpensive, simple procedure, much faster (1-4 min) reactions and high yield of products.
