The reaction of enone 1, bearing an internal nucleophilic moiety, i.e., furan or pyrrole (X = O, NR‘), with isocyanides is presented. The formation of products resulting from the reaction of the zwitterionic intermediate 2 with a second equivalent of isocyanide prior to cyclization to give 3, as well as the direct formation of 4 from 2, is described.
