One-pot Synthesis of Polysubstituted Indolizine Derivatives

Document Type: Research Paper



An efficient approach to the synthesis of 1,2,3-trisubstituted indolizines is described via one-pot reactions of pyridine and dialkyl acetylendicarboxylate in the presence of ethyl 2-chloroacetoacetate in MeOH at room temperature. The corresponding 1, 2, 3-trisubstituted indolizines may be useful building blocks for the construction of complex indolizine derivatives.
