BMS-911543 is a complex pyrrolopyridine investigated as a potential treatment for myeloproliferative disorders. The development of a short and efficient synthesis of this molecule is described. During the course of our studies, a Ni-mediated C–N bond formation was invented, which enabled the rapid construction of the highly substituted 2-aminopyridine core. The synthesis of this complex, nitrogen-rich heterocycle was accomplished in only eight steps starting from readily available materials.
