Cyanstion of 3-X-pyridine 1-oxides with trimethylsilanecarbonitrile and dimethylcarbamoyl chloride occurs quantitatively to give 3-X-2-pyridinecarbonitriles ≥ 90% isolated yields when X = -CH3, -OCH3, -OH and -Cl, and approximately equal amounts of the 3- and 5- X derivatives when X = -CN and -COOCH3.
