N-Sulfonyl- and N-acylpyrroles were synthesized via olefin ring-closing metathesis of diallylamines followed by in situ oxidative aromatization in the presence of the ruthenium Grubbs catalyst and a suitable copper catalyst. Under an oxygen atmosphere, the reaction worked smoothly without the need of hydroperoxide oxidants.
