Abstract
The synthesis of 5'-methyl-2,2'-bipyridine-6-carboxylic acid is described s tarting from the pivotal 5'-methyl-6-bromo-2,2'-bipyridine building block. Functionalisation of the latest at the 5'-methyl position gives access to t he 5'-bromomethyl, 5'-hydroxymethyl and 5'-aminomethyl derivatives. Upon nu cleophilic substitution, the hydroxy and amino derivatives react with the 5 '-bromomethyl compound to give quasi-linear and podand type intermediates. Thanks to a carboalkoxylation reaction at the 6-bromo position of the diffe rent intermediates, followed by a saponification reaction, mono-, bis- and tris-tridentate ligands are obtained, which are particularly well suited fo r the complexation of lanthanide(III) cations.
