J Med Chem. 2001 Jun 21;44(13):2229-37.A convenient, high-yield synthesis of 7-tert-butoxycarbonyl-7-azabicyclo[2.2.1]hept-2-ene (5), which involved the addition of tributyltin hydride to 7-tert-butoxycarbonyl-2-p-toluenesulfonyl-7-azabicyclo[2.2.1]hept-2-ene (4) followed by elimination of the tributyltin and p-tolylsulfonyl groups using tetrabutylammonium fluoride was developed. The addition of 2-amino-5-iodopyridine to 5 under reductive Heck conditions provided 7-tert-butoxycarbonyl-2-exo-(2'-amino-5'-pyridinyl)-7-azabicyclo[2. Read More
