An efficient method for the synthesis of pyridines related to nicotinic acid and their fused derivatives is described. The overall process involves a sequence comprising a four-component reaction that creates the heterocyclic framework from very simple open-chain precursors and two elimination steps, that are performed without the need for purifying any intermediate.

Keywords: Multicomponent reactions, elimination reactions, heterocyclic synthesis, pyridines, quinolines.
