An alternative to this sensitive lithiation process has been reported recently by Song,6 who realized the magnesium halogenexchange at C-2 under noncryogenic conditions (0 °C) using TMSCH2Li and TMSCH2Li-LiDMAE have been used i-PrMgCl in THF. The reaction proceeded smoothly allowing efficiently for bromine-lithium exchange in 2-bromo-, the preparation of a range of C-2-substituted derivatives.

The aminoalkoxide LiDMAE bromine at C-2 for iodine to direct the reaction toward the induced a remarkable C-2 selectivity with 2,5-dibromopyr- desired position, thus implying an additional step and added idines in toluene at 0 °C, which was unprecedented at such expense to the transformation (Scheme 1, eq 3).

The metalation mixtures were quenched with MeOH Li in such halogen-metal exchange reaction, we first investi- gated its behavior at 0 °C toward 2- and 3-bromopyridine in As shown, in toluene, which was the best solvent reported hexane (Table 1).

The effect of incorporating LiDMAE was remarkable in toluene leading to 2Li, and 2 equiv of TMSCH2Li were necessary for completion of the exchange. An explanation is the formation the C-2 metalation in 95% yield with only 4% of the other isomer after 30 min at 0 °C. Extended reaction time did not produce notable isomerization of the lithiated species (entries present in NMR spectra and GC analysis of the crude mixtures The effect of coordinating solvents was also examined (entries The metalation and the electrophilic condensation step were 8 and 9) to attempt the metalation of the C-5 position. In THF, realized in the same solvent and at similar temperatures. Large only degradation was observed while diethyl ether led to the excesses of electrophiles were not necessary despite the use of expected C-5 lithiation in 65% yield.
2Li-LiDMAE was, to our knowledge, the first reagent to regioselectively lithiate 2,5-dibromopyridine at 0 °C.

In summary, we have discovered a new reactivity of TMSCH2Li and TMSCH2Li-LiDMAE reagents. These reagentsare suitable for selective bromine-lithium exchange and subse-quent functionalization of several bromopyridines in apolarsolvents. The effect of LiDMAE on the selectivity in bromine-lithium exchange of 2,5-dibromopyridine is remarkable. Thetransformation proceeds under noncryogenic conditions con-suming only small excesses of electrophiles opening access toa potentially scalable process.

Procedure for Bromine-Lithium Exchange in 2,5-Dibro-
mopyridine. To a solution of 2-dimethylaminoethanol (164 mg,
1.84 mmoles) in toluene (6 mL) cooled at 0 °C was added dropwise
(trimethylsilyl)methyllithium (5.52 mmol, 6 mL of a 0.92 M
solution in hexane) under a nitrogen atmosphere. After being stirred
for 30 min at the same temperature, a solution of 2,5-dibromopyr-
idine (436 mg, 1.84 mmoles) in toluene (2 mL) was added dropwise.
The obtained red solution was then stirred for 30 min at 0 °C and
treated dropwise with a solution of the appropriate electrophile (2.2
or 2.76 mmol) in toluene (2 mL) at 0 or -20 °C. After 1 h of
stirring, the mixture was hydrolyzed with water (10 mL). The
organic layer was then extracted with diethyl ether (10 mL) and
dried over MgSO4, and the solvents were evaporated. The crude
product was subjected to GC analysis and finally purified by column
chromatography using hexane-AcOEt mixtures as eluent.
