Catalytic oxidation/C-H functionalization of N-arylpropiolamides by means of gold carbenoids: concise route to 3-acyloxindoles.


An efficient catalytic C-H functionalization by means of gold carbenoids for the one-step synthesis of 3-acyloxindole derivatives has been developed. The reaction proceeds efficiently with extremely good substrate scope and significant opportunities for structural diversification.
