Highly flexible and efficient syntheses of 1,2,3,5-substituted pyrroles starting from 2-propynyl1,3-dicarbonyl compounds and amines are presented. TFA catalyzed formation of the pyrroles is suggested to proceed through sequential amination of the carbonyl compounds followed by regioselective 5-exo-dig cyclization of the enaminone intermediate and aromatization.
