The 2-trimethylsilylpyrrolo[2,3-b]quinolines were easily transformed into 2-iodopyrrolo[2,3-b]quinolines under NIS/CH3CN. The palladium-catalyzed Heck, Stille, and Suzuki coupling reactions of 2-iodo[2,3-b]quinolines provided diverse 1,2,3-trisubstituted pyrrolo[2,3-b]quinolines in moderate to high yields.
