The Pd(TFA)2-catalyzed [4+1] annulation of chained or cyclic α-alkenyl-dicarbonyl compounds and unprotected primary amines for “one-pot” synthesis of pyrroles is reported here. Enamination and amino-alkene were involved in this practical and efficient tandem reaction. The annulation products were isolated in moderate to excellent yields with O2 as the terminal oxidant under mild conditions. In addition, this method was applied to synthesize highly regioselective aminomethylated and di(1H-pyrrol-3-yl)methane products. View Full-Text
