Abstract

Two new series of 2,2'-bipyrroles and 2,2'-thienylpyrroles have been prepared by trimethylsilyl trifluoromethanesulfonate (TMSOTf)-mediated reaction of donor-acceptor cyclopropanes with 2-cyanopyrroles and 2-cyanothiophene, respectively. This method opens the door toward a wide variety of unsymmetrical bipyrroles and thienylpyrroles.
