Unconventional modification of palladium-catalyzed oxidative amination where a furan ring serves as a masked olefin is described. The designed chemical process provides 2-(2-acylvinyl)indole derivatives with up to a 93% yield and excellent E-selectivity. A highly reactive α,β-unsaturated carbonyl moiety of the obtained compounds allows for accessing various heteroaromatic scaffolds through simple synthetic procedures.
