The palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction of 2- and 6-chloro-9-phenyl-9H-purines with potassium cyanide proceeded to give 9-phenyl-9H-purine-2- (3a-c) and -6-carbonitriles (4a-c). The conversion of the cyano group at the 2-position into the corresponding acyl group was achieved by treatment of 3a,b with Grignard reagents.
