Isoxazol-5(4H)-ones were used as nitrene precursors for the selective formation of trisubstituted pyrroles by applying a palladium-catalyzed decarboxylative ring-reconstruction method. The use of bulky biaryl-type monophosphine ligands was effective for improving the selectivity. Deuterium-labeling experiments suggested a mechanism involving -hydride elimination followed by reductive elimination from an aza--allyl intermediate.
