A method for the preparation of pentaerythrityl tetraimidazole was reported with pentaerythritol and imidazole as raw material. Pentaerythrityl tetrabromide(PEBr 4 ) was first prepared starting from pentaerythritol via two steps. Pentaerythrityl tetrabromide was then treated with imidazole, which was converted to pentaerythrityl tetraimidazole. The overall yield was 68.6%. The target product was analyzed and characterized by 1 H-NMR and 13 C-NMR methods, indicating that our route of synthesis is reasonable and feasible.
