The reaction of maleic and phthalic anhydrides with 2-methylimidazole

The reaction of maleic anhydride with 2-methylimidazole in acetonitrile and DMF is accompanied by the appearance of strong absorption bands in the visible part of the spectrum due to the formation of molecular complexes. In acetonitrile the reaction proceeds by two routes via the formation of an amide and the molecular complex. Phthalic anhydride reacts with 2-methylimidazole to give amide but not to form molecular complexes.
