Quinine, nicotine, and related electron-rich amino-substituted pyridines were readily metalated using LiCl-solubilized TMP (2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidyl) bases in the presence of BF3·OEt2. A full pyridine functionalization of all five positions of the pyridine ring can be realized by using an appropriate combination of TMP bases in the presence or absence of BF3·OEt2.
