oa South African Journal of Chemistry - HgO/I as an Efficient Reagent for the Oxidative Aromatization of Hantzsch 1-NH, 4-Dihydropyridines under Mild and Heterogeneous Conditions

Volume 59, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0379-4350



A variety of Hantzsch 1-NH, 4-dihydropyridines were efficiently aromatized to the corresponding pyridine derivatives by treatment with HgO/I reagent in dichloromethane under mild and heterogeneous conditions in good to excellent yields at room temperature. The products were separated by simple filtration and evaporation of the solvent.
