Ynamides as coupling reagents enable a practical one-pot strategy for α-keto amide bond formation under extremely mild reaction conditions. Diversely structural α-ketoamides were afforded in very good yields. This reaction offers wide functional group tolerance and has potential applications in synthetic and medicinal chemistry.
