Oxidative one-pot sequential reactions of inactivated saturated ketones with electron-deficient enamines enable an efficient synthesis of 3-acylpyridines and pyridine-3-carboxylates. The reaction involve oxidative dehydrogenation of the saturated ketone substrate, followed by [3+3] annulation with β-enaminone or β-enaminoester via a cascade process, including Michael addition, aldol type condensation, and oxidative aromatization.
