The development of a decarboxylative palladium-catalyzed coupling of 1,3-dicarbonyl compounds with indole, pyrrole, imidazole, and pyrazole nucleophiles via an allylic linker under neutral conditions is disclosed. This process enables the installation of an all-carbon quaternary center and new C−C and C−N bonds in a single operation. Despite the weakly acidic nature of N-heterocycles, the reactions proceed with good efficiency and complete regio- and chemoselectivity.
