We report here that the silver triflate-catalyzed cyclization of 2-amino-6-propargylamineazines affords new and highly functionalized iminoimidazoazines. We have investigated the scope and limitations of the present methodology, and some aspects of the reactivity of the resulting iminoimidazopyridines have been explored, and a DFT-based mechanistic analysis of the silver triflate-catalyzed cyclization has been undertaken.
