A protocol for synthesis of chalcone derivatives with a 2-pyridone subunit from N-(2-furanylmethyl) alkynamides is reported. This synthesis involves Pd/Cu-catalyzed oxidative furan–yne cyclization at room temperature in air and may proceed via nucleopalladation of the alkyne to form a vinylpalladium intermediate, with a furan ring acting as the nucleophile.
