This study describes the synthesis of novel 4-nitro-2-substitutedimidazole derivatives via a transposition reaction of nitro group. Conversion of 5-nitro-2-phenylethanol (styryl) imidazole derivatives into the corresponding 4- nitroisomers was achieved in good yields in nitrobenzene using a catalytic amount of methyl iodide. Spectroscopic study and single crystal X-ray structures are reported for five compounds to understand the conformational structures of these compounds.

Keywords: Transposition reaction, 4-nitroimidazole, 5-nitroimidazole, crystal structure.
