The effect of the solvent nature and temperature on the quaternization of 3,5-diethoxycarbonyl-2,6-di- methyl-4-(3-pyridyl)-1,4-dihydropyridine by lipophilic alkyl bromides has been investigated. By comparison of the solvent effect (acetone, acetonitrile, and 2-butanone) on the alkylation of the pyridine fragment of 3,5-diethoxycarbonyl-2,6-dimethyl-4-(3-pyridyl)-1,4-dihydropyridine it was established that conducting the reaction in acetonitrile at 81 °C is the most optimal.
