An efficient two-component palladium-catalyzed arylation/cyclization cascade approach toward various highly functionalized N-fused pyrroloheterocycles in very good yield proceeds via a palladium-catalyzed coupling of aryl halides with propargylic esters or ethers followed by a 5-endo-dig cyclization.
