A new method for free radical methylation of pyrimidinones and pyridinones with dicumyl peroxide (DCP) under metal-free conditions is introduced. A 50 g-scale reaction could be performed safely at the desired concentration. The reaction solvent and DCP derivative were readily recovered by distillation. The product was purified by crystallization to minimize the amount of waste.
