Iodoanilines bearing a diene side-chain at the 3-position were converted to tricyclic fused indole derivatives under palladium catalysis. This cascade reaction proceeds through an intramolecular Heck insertion of the diene, followed by an allylic amination reaction sequence. Experimental and computational studies indicated that 3--allyl palladium complex-mediated substitution was operative for the latter cyclization.
