A general procedure for the palladium-catalyzed carbonylative Sonogashira coupling of aryl bromides is reported, using near stoichiometric amounts of carbon monoxide. The method allows a broad substrate scope in moderate to excellent yields. The formed alkynone motive serves as a platform for synthesis of various heterocyclic structures, including pyrimidines. Furthermore, the presented strategy allows effective 13C labeling.
