Brønsted acid catalyzed tandem cyclization was found to be highly effective for the preparation of a series of polysubstituted 4-pyrones from diynones (yield up to 99%). 4-Pyridone and 3-pyrrolone derivatives were also selectively synthesized by employing NIS and/or Brønsted acid. NIS as an electrophilic reagent could promote these reactions efficiently and rapidly under very mild reaction conditions.
