N-Unsubstituted cyclic imides were readily synthesized in deep eutectic solvent (DES) choline chloride (ChCl)/urea from anhydrides with urea. Urea serves as both a DES component and a nitrogen source, which endows the protocol with advantages of smooth reaction, easy separation of products, simple recovery and recycling of ChCl/urea.
