A new and efficient methodology to synthesize N-substituted pyrrole derivatives by Clauson Kaas reaction employing Oxone as catalyst was developed. The transformation was performed in acetonitrile under microwave irradiation. This procedure has several advantages such as high yield, clean product formation, and short reaction time.
