A step-economical access to polysubstituted aminoimidazoles via alkene vicinal C-N bonds formation of 2-bromo-2-alkenones with guanidine avoids a NH-protection/derivatization strategy. The reaction involves a tandem pathway of aza-Michael addition, SN2, and a unique redox-neutral process and offers an excellent substrate scope.
