An efficient synthesis of bicyclic heterocycles has been realized from L-glutamic acid. The key step is the construction of the pyrrole ring in a single step, using tosylmethyl isocyanide (TosMIC) methodology. Structures of reaction intermediates and final products were investigated using density functional theory calculations.
