Borono-Mannich reactions can be performed in solvent-free conditions under microwave irradition with short reaction time. Full conversion of the starting materials towards the expected product was achieved, starting from stoichiometric quantities of reactants, avoiding column chromatography. No purification step other than an aqueous washing was required.
