Open image in new window New methodology for one-pot С–H functionalization of pyridines without the use of transition metal catalysts (microreview)

  • Dmitry I. BugaenkoEmail author

This microreview is devoted to one-pot methodology for C–H functionalization of pyridines, which involve their preliminary N-activation through the formation of pyridinium salts (or coordination of electrophilic species with the nitrogen atom), followed by С-functionalization in the ring. Publications from the years 2013–2018 are considered.
