Imidazole (ImH) is a molecule and an organic compound.[1] Its chemical formula is C3N2H4. It is a white or colourless solid that is soluble in water, producing a mildly alkaline solution.

Many natural products, especially alkaloids, have the imidazole ring. This ring system is present in important biological building blocks, such as histidine, and the related hormone, histamine.
