A highly efficient palladium catalyzed decarboxylative allylic rearrangement of alloc indoles has been developed. This can also be combined with a Suzuki–Miyaura cross-coupling reaction in a single pot transformation. Substituted alloc groups and benzylic variants have also been demonstrated alongside promising initial results on the enantioselective variant.
