The compound 2′-chloro-4-(1-methyl-1H-imidazol-2-yl)-2,4′-bipyridine was obtained with a good yield by the reaction of 2-chloro-4-(1-methyl-1H-imidazol-2-yl)pyridine with (2-chloropyridin-4-yl)boronic acid and structurally characterized by nuclear magnetic resonance (1H-NMR and 13C-NMR), thin-layer chromatography–mass spectrometry (TLC–MS), HPLC, gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS), and elemental analysis. The functionalization of the pyridine was achieved by the palladium-catalyzed Suzuki–Miyaura carbon–carbon cross-coupling reaction that afforded the target compound. View Full-Text
