General description

2,6-Lutidine, also known as 2,6-dimethylpyridine, is an organic compound that is commonly used as a reagent in various organic reactions, such as the synthesis of heterocycles, nitroalkenes, and alkyl halides. It can also be used as a catalyst in organic synthesis.

Application

2,6-Lutidine can be used as:
  • A base in the synthesis of an aldol adduct from malonic acid hemithioesters and aldehydes catalyzed by Cu(II) salt.
  • An additive in reductive cyclization of epoxygeranyl acetate.
  • A catalyst in combination with CuI for selective synthesis of N-sulfonyl-1,2,3-triazoles.
