Polysubstituted pyridines have been prepared in fair yields by a one-step reactionn of heteroarene 3-bromo-2,3-dimethoxy-5-(methoxymethyl)pyridine 3 and lithio alkyl- and lithio aryl-acetonitriles via the heteroaryne 13 generated from 3 by LDA in THF. Most lithio arylacetonitriles 4a-f yield rearranged products 5a-f by the tandem-addition rearrangement pathway and a 2:1 to 3:1 mixture of normal hetaryne products 6a-f and 7a-f. The other nitriles 4g-l give mixtures of the usual hetaryne products in ratios of 3:1 to 4:1, 6g-l:7g-l, respectively.
