The reaction of 2-iodoaniline with ethyl 2-ethoxyacrylate in the presence of palladium-charcoal gave 3-ethoxy-2(1H)-quinolinone, and the reaction of 2-iodoacetanilide with the same reagent yielded ethyl 2-acetylamino-α-ethoxycinnamate which was cyclized to ethyl indole-2-carboxylate under acidic conditions. On the other hand, the palladium-catalyzed reaction of 2-iodobenzonitrile and ethyl 2-iodobenzoate afforded the corresponding cinnamates which were transformed into isoquinoline and isocoumarin derivatives.
