O-Vinyl oximes were synthesised from the reaction of oximes with activated alkynes and subsequently rearranged using gold catalysis to afford highly substituted pyrroles in an efficient and regiocontrolled process. Additionally, pyrroles were formed directly from oximes and activated alkynes in a multifaceted catalysis process.
