Something gained, nothing lost: A Pd0-catalyzed domino intermolecular/intramolecular process terminated by carbohalogenation is reported. In this reaction, two new C[BOND]C bonds, one new C[BOND]I bond and one five-membered ring are formed in a single step, and all of the atoms in the starting materials are incorporated into the product (see scheme).
