Abstract

A three-component, one-pot, synthesis of N-protected tetrasubstituted pyrroles has been developed by treating nitroallylic acetates with an amine and a β-keto ester mediated by ceric ammonium nitrate in MeOH. By this method, a diverse array of N-protected pyrrole 2,4-dicarboxylic acid derivatives have been synthesized in 37-76% yield. The reactions proceed smoothly through an interesting SN2' displacement and aromatization process.
