A method for the synthesis of 2-aryl(alkyl)aminopyrimidines from readily available 3,4-dihydropyrimidin-1H-2-thiones (DHPMs) via dehydrosulfurative C-N cross-coupling and concomitant oxidative dehydrogenation under a Pd/Cu catalytic system is described. This reaction protocol provides unprecedented diversity of fully substituted 2-aryl(alkyl)aminopyrimidines in a single step from a wide range of DHPMs and amine coupling partners.
