Thermal and microwave-assisted rapid reactions of aminopyridines and α-bromo-β-keto esters enable the synthesis of highly substituted imidazo[1,2-a]pyridines under solvent-free conditions. Reactions carried out under microwave irradiation give the highest yields of products in reaction times of less than two minutes.
