4-Methoxypyridine, a molecule with ether function, is a reactive base. Its nitrogen atom is activated by the methoxy group. It renders the molecule active and thus 4-methoxypyrimidine participates in many chemical processes. Its uses are in intermediates, in synthesis of biologically active moieties, and in proteomic research.
The compound is produced by ether formation reaction between methanol and 4-bromopyridine. Alternative synthesis route is catalytic hydrogenation of 4-methoxypyridine-N-oxide.
Methyl pyridin-4-yl ether
Applications in Proteins
In proteomic research, 4-methoxypyridine is used in synthesis of benzoylated N-ylides, which in turn act as protein farnesyltransferase inhibitor.
Applications in Intermediates
Amongst few others, the following intermediates are manufactured from 4-methoxypyridine:
|As building block for synthesis of some biologically active compounds|
|Its o-lithiated derivative used as metalating base in synthetic chemistry|
|As a starting reagent for stereo-controlled synthesis of (±)-pumiliotoxin C and (±)-lasubine II|
|In efficient construction of dihyropyridin-4-ones, which in turn serve as potential ligands for neuronal nicotinic acetycholine receptors|
|As flavoring agent in food|
