Pyrroles were synthesized in one step by using the acceptorless dehydrogenative coupling of amino alcohols with secondary alcohols (equivalent amounts), catalyzed by ruthenium pincer complexes (0.5 mol %) and a base (less than stoichiometric amounts) through selective CN and CC bond formation. This atom-economical, environmentally friendly methodology offers easy access to a range of substituted pyrroles in moderate to good yields.
