Rh-catalyzed weak and traceless directing-group-assisted cascade C–H activation and annulation of sulfoxonium ylides with vinyl cyclopropanes as a coupling partner have been accomplished to furnish functionalized cyclopropane-fused tetralones at moderate temperature. The C–C bond formation, cyclopropanation, functional group tolerance, late-stage diversifications of drug molecules, and scale-up are the important practical features.
