A one-pot two-step synthesis of versatile indenones has been developed. This palladium(II)-catalyzed transformation involves generation and condensation of ortho-functionalized 1,2-benzils from 2-(2-arylethynylphenyl)acetonitriles using Ph2SO as the oxidant. The resulting 3-cyanoindenones can be converted to various valuable molecules.

A novel Pd/Cu catalyzed domino reaction for the synthesis of functionalized pyrrolo[1,2-b]pyridazines from readily accessible (hetero)aryl propargyl alcohols and 1-amino-2-bromopyrroles was developed. This cascade process involves a Sonogashira cross-coupling reaction, an isomerization and an intramolecular condensation.
