Sulfone–Metal Exchange and Alkylation of Sulfonylnitriles

Sulfone–Metal Exchange and Alkylation of Sulfonylnitriles: The first general sulfone–metal exchange is described. Treating substituted 2‐pyridylsulfonylacetonitriles with either BuLi or Bu3MgLi generates metalated nitriles that efficiently intercept a variety of electrophiles to afford quaternary nitriles.
