Use of the heterogeneous catalyst amberlist-15 A enables an efficient synthesis of N-(tert-butylsulfinyl)imines under microwave irradiation. Amberlist-15 is convenient to handle, inexpensive, safe to use and quickly separable from the reaction mixture. This method offers a number of advantages including operational simplicity, high yield of products, and broad substrate scope.
