Benzimidazoles and their derivatives including imidazole are studied widely because they exist in the structure of natural products and different drugs. pK(a) values are extremely important for drug discovery and improvement in order to determine pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic features such as permeation through biological barriers, interactions with the target area or side effects. Acid-base features (pK(a)) have great importance not only for physiological characteristics but also for being used as a ligand or changing physico-chemical features by turning benzimidazoles into salts. Within the scope of this study, a variety of new benzimidazole salts were synthesized, and their characterizations were made by NMR spectroscopy, FTIR spectroscopy and element analysis techniques. The pK(a) values of synthesized benzimidazole saltswere determined by inflection point approach using integration values obtained with H-1 NMR spectroscopy and Henderson-Hasselbalch analysis. pK(a) values of some benzimidazole salts were also determined by potentiometric methods in order to compare those of NMR spectroscopy results.
