Described is an iterative assembly of nitrile oxides and ynamides for the synthesis of isoxazoles and pyrroles. The nitrile oxides could undergo Cu­(I)-free cyclization with terminal ynamides for accessing isoxazoles, which could engage in another cyclization with internal ynamides in the presence of Au­(I) catalyst to deliver pyrroles, and the reaction could be carried out in a two-step, one-pot procedure. This process is featured with mild reaction condition and broad substrate scope for the synthesis of heterocycles.
