An alternative method to prepare 2-organylchalcogenopheno[2,3-b]pyridines was developed by the insertion of chalcogen species (selenium, sulfur or tellurium), generated in situ, into 2-chloro-3-(organylethynyl)pyridines by using the NaBH4 /PEG-400 reducing system, followed by an intramolecular cyclization. It was possible to obtain a series of compounds with up to 93 % yield in short reaction times. Among the synthesized products, 2-organyltelluropheno[2,3-b]pyridines have not been described in the literature so far. Moreover, the compounds 2-phenylthieno[2,3-b]pyridine (3 b) and 2-phenyltelluropheno[2,3-b]pyridine (3 c) exhibited significant antioxidant potential in different in vitro assays. Further studies demonstrated that compound 3 b exerted an antinociceptive effect in acute inflammatory and non-inflammatory pain models, thus indicating the involvement of the central and peripheral nervous systems on its pharmacological action. More specifically, our results suggest that the intrinsic antioxidant property of compound 3 b might contribute to attenuating the nociception and inflammatory process on local injury induced by complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA). © 2020 Wiley-VCH GmbH.
