Organolithium reagents have been found to add to the 4- or 6-position in pyridines depending on the nature of the oxazoline present. Thus, methoxy-containing oxazolines lead to the 4-addition product (>95%), whereas hydroxy-containing oxazolines direct addition to the 6-position in yields as high as 95%.
