A facile and convenient method was developed for the formation of novel N substituted 2-aminobenzothiazoles via an iron-catalysed condensation of 2-aminobenzothizole with different amines. This method is applicable for a wide range of aliphatic, aromatic and heterocyclic amines furnishing moderate yields of the corresponding products and thus rendering the methodology as a highly eco-friendly, inexpensive alternative to the existing methods.
