2,6-Dimethylpiperidines are chemical compounds with the formula C5H8(CH3)2NH. Two diastereomers exist: the achiral R,S isomer and the chiral R,R/S,S pair. Dimethylpiperidines are derivatives of the heterocycle piperidine, wherein two hydrogen atoms are replaced by methyl groups.
Additional recommended knowledge
The 2,6-dimethylpiperidines are prepared by reduction of 2,6-dimethylpyridine (2,6-lutidine). The R,S isomer is favored.
The 2,6-dimethylpiperidines are of interest for their conformational properties. The R,S isomer exists largely in the chair conformation with equatorial methyl groups. The R,R/S,S isomers are attractive chiral secondary amine building blocks.
