Electron Transfer-induced Aromatization of 1 , 4-Dihydropyridines


A wide variety of 3,5-dicarboethoxy-1,4-dihydropyridines and 3,5-diacetyl-1,4-dihydropyridines are aromatized to the pyridine derivatives by 2,3-dichloro-5,6-dicyano-p-benzoquinone (DDQ) at room temperature and under microwave irradiation. An electron transfer-induced mechanism is proposed for this reaction which is influenced by the nature of the solvent… (More)
