Abstract

The sequential functionalisation of 2-phenylpyridine is presented using selective ortho- and meta-directing processes. It was found that performing a reaction sequence with meta functionalisation first followed by ortho functionalisation provided novel reaction products in good yields and with complete regioselectivity.
