Abstract

We report an efficient method for preparing 2,4-dibromopyridine and 4,4’-dibromo-2,2’-bipyridine from the corresponding nitroazine N-oxide in one step via a tandem nucleophilic substitution-N-oxide reduction process. The one step preparation of 4,4’-dihalo-2,2’-bipyridines from dihalopyridines via a Stille reaction is also described. 4,4’-Dibromo-2,2’-bipyridine undergoes selective mono- or disubstitution processes under palladium catalysis. This short synthetic procedure is an efficient and reliable process for preparing conjugated pyridine and 2,2’-bipyridine building blocks for applications in coordination chemistry and materials science.
