Organocuprates efficiently undergo reaction with heterocyclic propargyl mesylates at low temperature to produce N-fused heterocycles. The copper reagent plays a “double duty” in this cascade transformation, which proceeds through an SN2’-substitution followed by a consequent cycloisomerization step.
