Abstract: 2‐Aminopyridines are key structural cores of bioactive natural products, medicinally important compounds, and organic materials and thus, extremely valuable synthetic targets. The few reported 6‐substituted 2‐aminopyridines and the lack of flexible, efficient and general applicable methods for their synthesis demonstrates the urgent need of new methods for their preparation. Reactions between 2,6‐dibromopyridine and primary or secondary, cyclic or acyclic, and aliphatic or aromatic amines were shown to selectively yield the respective 6‐bromopyridine‐2‐amines in very high yields which were successfully used as substrates for subsequent C-C cross‐coupling reactions. The recently introduced dichloro‐bis[1‐(dicyclohexylphosphanyl)piperidine]palladium was used as catalyst for the cross‐coupling of 6‐bromopyridine‐2‐amines with arylboronic acids, diaryl‐ and dialkylzinc reagents or olefins and hence, is also an excellent C-C cross‐coupling catalyst for this type of substrate. Moreover, all the reaction protocols presented were in each of the catalyses uniformly applied. The scope of both the amination and the cross‐coupling reactions are well defined and allow one to simply adapt the reaction protocols directly to other amines and/or coupling partners and, thus, provide for the first time a very flexible and generally applicable reaction protocol to get access to 2‐aminopyridines.
