A palladium-catalyzed preparation of 2,3-disubstituted indoles from commercially available and relatively inexpensive reagents, o-chloroacetanilide and internal alkynes, is reported. The system is efficient in delivering 2,3-disubstituted indoles in good to excellent yield with a high level of regioselectivity in most cases. Alkynes with alkyl, aryl, alkenyl, and trialkylsilyl substituents are compatible with this methodology.
