A new methodology was developed to access isothiazolone derivatives from simple acrylamides by transition metal catalyzed C–H bond functionalization. This Pd-catalyzed reaction using an electrophilic SCN source offered an efficient tool to access a panel of functionalized isothiazolone derivatives (21 examples, up to 71% yield).
