The chemoselectivity of hydrodechlorination in 2-chloropyridine derivatives possessing reduction-sensitive functionalities is examined. The reaction conditions employed tolerate a variety of functionalities illustrating highly chemoselective hydrodechlorination in the presence of nitrile, allyl, terminal olefin, and nitroamine functionalities in excellent yield. Chemoselective deprotection of carboxybenzyl ethers is illustrated in moderate yield.
