Abstract :
6-hydroxy-N-(6-methylpyridin-2-yl)naphthalene-2-carboxamide and its alkoxy analogues bearing long alkyl chains have been synthesized using 6-hydroxy-2-naphthoic acid and 2-amino-6-picoline. The facile synthetic scheme reported here using conventional laboratory reagents opens up a new strategy for the generation of libraries of such compounds in high yields.
