A highly efficient and green method has been developed for the rapid preparation of highly functionalized isoxazolopyridin-3-amine derivatives in excellent yields. This process has a broad substrate scope, is operationally simple, and generally requires no chromatographic purification. In addition, the process is scalable and significantly greener than current alternatives with a PMI of 18 and water as the reaction solvent.

Paul G. Bulger was born in London, England, in 1978. He received his undergraduate M.Chem degree in 2000 from the University of Oxford, completing his Part II project under the supervision of Dr. Mark G. Moloney. He remained at Oxford for his graduate studies, obtaining his D. Phil. in chemistry in 2003 for research conducted under the supervision of Professor Sir Jack E. Baldwin. After an enjoyable three-year stint as a postdoctoral researcher in Professor K. C. Nicolaou's group at The Scripps Research Institute, he joined the Process Research Department of Merck & Co., Inc. in the fall of 2006.
