Cu(I)-Catalyzed and catalyst-free amination of 2-fluoro-5-iodopyridine with adamantylalkyl amines possessing different steric hindrances at amino group was investigated to obtain corresponding 5-amino-2-fluoro- and 2-amino-5-iodopyridines. The competition between catalytic substitution of iodine and non-catalytic substitution of fluorine was shown to take place. The catalytic system CuI/2-(isobutyryl)cyclohexanone in DMF provided yields of 5-amino-2-fluoropyridines up to 58% with stoichiometric ratio of the reagents and up to 98% with two equiv. of amines. The non-catalytic amination of 2-fluoro-5-iodopyridine provided the yields of 2-amino-5-iodopyridines up to 97%.
