Abstract: The nitro group of methyl 3-nitropyridine-4-carboxylate (1) has successfully been replaced by fluoride anion via nucleophilic aromatic substitution to give the 3-fluoro- pyridine-4-carboxylate 2.
Keywords: Methyl 3-fluoropyridine-4-carboxylate; methyl 3-nitropyridine-4-carboxylate; fluoride anion; nucleophilic aromatic substitution.
