Abstract: A simple, convenient, and practical method for the synthesis of α-amino nitriles through a one-pot, three-component Strecker reaction of diverse carbonyl compounds and amines with trimethylsilyl cyanide (TMSCN) under mild conditions in EtOH 96 % has been developed. Reactions proceed efficiently in the presence of a catalytic amounts of new and recoverable ionic liquid of N-butyl-N-methyl imidazolium Phthalimide-N-Oxyl {[Bmim] PINO} at room temperature.
