A series of novel pyrimidinamine derivatives containing phenyloxazole moiety were designed and synthesized, and their structures were characterized by 1H NMR, MS, and elemental analyses. The bioassay results displayed that some compounds exhibited remarkable insecticidal activities against Aphis fabae and Tetranychus cinnabarinus. Especially, 5-chloro-6-ethyl-2-methyl-N-((2-(p-tolyl)oxazol-4-yl)methyl)pyrimidin-4-amine (9o) showed potent activity against A. fabae, superior to that of the commercial insecticide, imidacloprid. In addition, 5-chloro-6-ethyl-2-methyl-N-((2-(4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl)oxazol-4-yl)methyl)pyrimidin-4-amine (9r) showed potent activities against T. cinnabarinus, inferior to that of the commercial insecticide spirotetramat. The structure–activity relationship study for the target compounds was also discussed.
