Abstract

The functionalized pyrrole nucleus contained in the indole system has been assembled via the palladium-catalyzed reaction of o-alkynyltrifluoroacetanilides with organic halides/triflates or allyl carbonates. In the presence of carbon monoxide, a three-component reaction can take place and indole derivatives incorporating a molecule of carbon monoxide have been obtained.
