Oxidative regioselective amination of chromones exposes potent inhibitors of the hedgehog signaling pathway.


A transition metal-free, oxidative, regioselective cross-coupling between non-functionalized azoles and chromones at C2-position was developed. A broad reaction scope and further transformation of products were demonstrated. The biological evaluation of products revealed a novel class of hedgehog signaling pathway inhibitors.
