This thesis is presented as five chapters: Chapter 1.0 is divided into two sections: the first is a review of palladium-catalysed C–C bond forming reactions. It covers palladium-catalysed cross-coupling reactions; C–H bond functionalisation; the Heck reaction and functionalisation of heteroaromatic C–H bonds. Secondly the use of tetrahydropyridines in organic synthesis is discussed, with a particular focus on methodology developed by the Craig group. Chapter 2.0 discusses the research carried out during this studentship. It is divided into six sections and discusses the results obtained from research efforts into: our initial strategy for tetrahydropyridine synthesis; an SN1 approach; an α,β-unsaturated lactam approach; synthesis of 3-methoxy aryl-substituted tetrahydropyridines; synthesis of heteroaromatic analogues and further elaboration of tricyclic tetrahydropyridines. Chapter 3.0 details future work proposed within the areas described above. Chapter 4.0 details the experimental procedures employed and spectroscopic data for the compounds discussed in chapter 2.0. Finally, chapter 5.0 lists the references sourced in this thesis.
