Indoles, benzofurans and benzosultams endowed with arylsulfonyl groups were prepared in two steps from 2-bromoallyl sulfones. ortho-Halosulfonamides and ortho-iodophenol reacted with 2-bromoallyl sulfones in the presence of cesium carbonate to furnish products resulting from a formal vinylic substitution reaction. Palladium-catalyzed intramolecular Heck reaction of these adducts furnished sulfonylated indoles, benzosultams and benzofurans. Isomerization of the double bond participating in the Heck reaction under basic conditions led to the formation of two isomeric products in two cases. Conditions for selectively accessing each of the regioisomeric indoles were developed.
