Abstract

An iridium-catalyzed site-selective C–H borylation of 2-pyridones has been developed. The site selectivity is predominantly controlled by steric factors, and we can access C4, C5, and C6 C–H on the 2-pyridone ring by the judicious choice of ligand and solvent. Subsequent Suzuki–Miyaura cross-coupling of the borylated products also proceeds to form the corresponding arylated pyridones in good overall yields.

      To the best of our knowledge, the nondirected catalytic C–H borylation of 2-pyridones has not been reported while the reactivity and selectivity of several nitrogen-containing heterocycles has been extensively investigated; see:
