A mild three-component synthetic approach to versatile 2-amino-1,4-dihydropyridines from terminal alkynes, sulfonyl azides, and N-sulfonyl-1-aza-1,3-butadienes was successfully developed and relied on the in situ generation of metalated ynamide intermediates Ib to achieve a formal inverse electron-demand hetero-Diels–Alder reaction. Experimental results suggest that alkali metal cations (Li+ and Cs+ ions) might play a critical role to achieve the cycloaddition process.
