A series of N3 and N9 aryladenines was prepared by arylation of 8-bromoadenine under modified Chan-Lam-Evans coupling conditions followed by reductive debromination with hydrogen on palladium. Conditions of arylation were optimised to maximise the yield of N3-arylated products. The selectivity of the reaction varied with temperature the ligand used. The best results were obtained in DMF with phenanthroline as a ligand at 60°C.
