Pyridine chromium tricarbonyl complexes: completely stereoselective α,α-dialkylation of 2-methylpyridine tricarbonylchromium

Abstract

Sequential α-deprotonation–methylation of (RS)-2-(1-but-3-enyl)pyridine tricarbonylchromium generates completely stereoselectively (N-RS, α-RS)-[2-(2-pent-4-enyl)pyridine]tricarbonylchromium which in turn undergoes completely stereoselective nucleophilic methylation (MeLi) to generate after methyl iodide quench (N-RS,2-SR,α-RS)-[exo-N,2-dimethyl-6-(2-pent-4-enyl)-1,2-dihydropyridine]tricarbonylchromium.
