Microwave(MW)-assisted ortho-alkylation of aromatic imine with acrylic acid derivatives was performed in the presence of a (PPh3) 3RhCl catalyst, and corresponding ortho-alkylated ketones were obtained after hydrolysis of the resulting ketimines. This solventless MW-assisted ortho-alkylation was highly efficient compared with conventional heating, probably due to the specific MW effect.
