A novel multicomponent reaction between IL-anchored 2-aminobenzoimidazoles, aldehydes, and electrondeficient dienophiles has been explored. The strategy was utilized to develop a rapid parallel synthesis for novel bis-heterocyclic skeleton of benzimidazole-linked dihydropyrimidine on an ionic liquid support. This multicomponent reaction is compatible with a wide range of substrates and furnishes the new chimeric scaffolds with high purity and excellent yields. Use of the ionic liquid as a soluble support facilitates purification by simple precipitation along with advantages like high loading capacity, homogeneous reaction conditions, and monitoring of the reaction progress by conventional NMR spectroscopy.
