A mild, metal-free, multicomponent reaction provides N-acyl amidines from nitroalkene derivatives, dibromo amides, and amines via formation of an initial α,α-dibromonitroalkane intermediate that can undergo C-C bond cleavage. This alternative approach toward N-acyl amidines enables rapid construction of amidine frameworks with high diversity and complexity.
