Methods for the synthesis of both simple 4-halo-2-pyridones and more functionalized 3,4-di-and (3,4,5-tri) halo-2-pyridones are described that are based on a combination of Sandmeyer and regioselective (Cu-mediated) halogenation, with a 2-chloro or a 2-benzyloxy moiety serving as a masked 2-pyridone.
