Synthesis of 2,4,6-Trisubstituted Pyridines by Oxidative Eosin Y Photoredox Catalysis

Rohokale, Rajendra S. ; König, Burkhard ; Dhavale, Dilip D.


Eosin Y, an organic dye, was activated as a photoredox catalyst in the presence of molecular oxygen using visible light and, when it was used in the reaction of aryl ketones and benzyl amines, afforded good yields (52-87%) of 2,4,6-triarylpyridines (21 examples) at ambient temperature. The aryl groups at the 2- and 6-positions are derived from ketones, while benzyl, amine plays the dual role of providing an aryl functionality at the 4-position of pyridine as well as being a nitrogen donor.
