A new type of reaction was developed for the construction of a pyrrole ring. When 1,8-disubstituted 2,7-bis(p-tolylsulfonyl)-1,7-octadiene-3,6-diynes (6) was treated with an aniline derivative (7) in the presence of CuCl (1.6 equiv.) and CuCl2 (0.16 equiv.) in DMF (at 90 °C), one 2-sulfonyl-1-alken-3-yne part of 6 was converted to a 1-arylpyrrole skeleton in a reasonable yield.
