    • Abstract

       

      Methylation and benzylation of 5 (or 6)-methyl benzimidazoles has been carried out under uniform conditions. The structures of the products obtained have been established by comparison with authentic samples prepared by unambiguous methods. The results obtained are explained on the basis of inductive effect of the methyl group and the relative basicity of the two nitrogen atoms.
