A new member of the 2-acetylpyridine family has been prepared and characterized. Its synthesis is a two-step process starting from a pyridyl-alcohol in which the ketone moiety is protected as a cyclic acetal. Alkylation of the alcohol followed by hydrolysis of the acetal afforded the title compound in 52% overall yield. View Full-Text
