Cascade reactions of saturated cyclic amines with 2-oxo-2-arylacetic acids enable a highly regioselective and versatile synthesis of acylated N-heterocycles. In this cascade process, the copper catalyst is believed to play a crucial role not only in dehydrogenation but also in the decarboxylation and cross coupling reaction.
