An approach to dihydroindoles and tetrahydroquinolines from N-alkenylated 2-acylamino-3-furancarbonitriles via a [4 + 2] cycloaddition reaction is described. Thermal treatment of N-alkenylated 2-acylamino-3- furancarbonitriles 5ad, 6ad, 9ad, and 10ad, which were prepared from 2-acylamino-3-furancarbonitriles 3ad and/or 4ad and 4-bromo-1-butene and/or 5-bromo-1-pentene, caused an intramolecular Diels-Alder reaction to give the corresponding dihydroindole and tetrahydroquinoline derivatives 7ad, 8ad, 11ad, and 12ad. This method has the advantage of easier work-up procedure.
