General methods for the synthesis of methyl 6-X-picolinates, methyl 6- X-nicotinates, and methyl 2-X-isonicotinates (X = NO2, Br, MeO, Me2N) from the appropriate 2-amino-n-methylpyridine (n = 6, 5, 4 respectively) are described. Preparations of methyl 6-methylpicolinate and methyl 2-methylisonicotinate from the corresponding lutidines are given also.
