An efficient ecofriendly method for the alkylation reaction of various imines is described by a simple one-pot reaction of aldehydes, amines and alkyl iodides in the presence of AgI nanoparticles in aqueous media. Silver iodide nanoparticles mediated an enhanced rate and facility of reaction and showed high influence in the green synthesis of some amine derivatives. Moreover, this nanoparticle increased the yields of products and decreased the reaction times in all cases. The heterogeneous mediator was fully characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and FT-IR experimental techniques.
