Phosphorus ligand-coupling reactions for the functionalization of pyridine and other azines
Pyridines and related azines are ubiquitous in pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and materials. The discovery and development of new purpose-built molecules is contingent on our ability to modify these motifs. Described herein are the development of methods that selectively functionalize pyridine and diazine scaffolds through phosphorus ligand-coupling. Novel phosphine reagents were designed and leveraged to construct C–C, C–O, and C–N bonds on azines from their C–H precursors. Chapter one introduces the history of phosphorus ligand-coupling and defines the reactivity explored throughout this ...
