Heck reaction of N-(2-halophenyl)-N-methyl-1-cyclohexene-1carboxamide (1) and 2-bromo-N-methyl-N-phenyl-1-cyclohexene-1-carboxamide (4) using a palladium reagent under several reaction conditions was examined. Reaction of 4 using Pd(OAc)2, DPPP, and Bu3P afforded tetrahydrophenanthridone (5) in excellent yield.
