Privileged medicinal scaffolds based on the structures of tetra- and pentasubstituted 2-aminopyrroles were prepared via one-pot multicomponent reactions of structurally diverse aldehydes and N-(aryl-, hetaryl-, alkylsulfonamido)acetophenones with activated methylene compounds. This methodology was used in a four-step synthesis of alkaloids rigidins A, B, C, and D in overall yields of 61%, 58%, 60%, and 53%, respectively. Of these, rigidins B, C, and D were synthesized for the first time.
