An efficient, one-pot, solvent-free synthesis of ethyl 3,5-disubstituted-1H-pyrrole-2-carboxylate is achieved by
a reaction of 1,3-disubstituted propen-2-one and ethylnitroacetate, in presence of diethylamine (Et2NH) and triethylphosphite
(P(OEt)3) under microwave (MW) irradiation via cascade Michael-reductive cyclization. The mechanistic outcome
of the reaction has also been described. This protocol establishes an easy access to disubstituted-1H-pyrrole-2-
carboxylates in one pot.
