(Chemical Equation Presented) Organocopper reagents smoothly react with heterocyclic propargyl mesylates at low temperature to produce N-fused heterocycles. The copper reagent plays a "double duty" in this novel cascade transformation, which proceeds via an SN2′ substitution followed by a subsequent cycloisomerization step.
