Abstract

Demonstrating direct synergic ''low polarity metallation'', 1-methylindole is C-magnesiated by (TMEDA)2?Na2MgBu4 and C-zincated by (TMEDA)?Na(tBu)(TMP)Zn(tBu), and 1-methylpyrrole is C-zincated by the same reagent, with all three metal products successfully crystallographically characterised.
