A dual catalytic approach offers readily access to substituted heterocycle aldehydes via oxygen radical addition to vinyl-gold intermediates under Fe catalyst assistance. This system offers good functional group compatibility for the synthesis of substituted oxazole, indole, and benzofuran aldehydes.
