Balkenhohl, Moritz; François, Cyril; Sustac Roman, Daniela; Quinio, Pauline; Knochel, Paul (2017): Transition-Metal-Free Amination of Pyridine-2-sulfonyl Chloride and Related N-Heterocycles Using Magnesium Amides. In: Organic Letters, Vol. 19, No. 3: pp. 536-539

A new transition-metal-free amination of pyridine-2-sulfonyl chloride and related N-heterocycles using magnesium amides of type R2NMgCl center dot LiCl is reported. Additionally, the directed ortho-magnesiation of pyridine-2-sulfonamides using TMPMgCl center dot LiCl was investigated. Reaction of the magnesium intermediates with various electrophiles and subsequent amination using magnesium amides led to a range of 2,3-functionalized pyridines. Also, cyclization reactions providing an aza-indole and an aza-carbazole were carried out.
