A palladium-catalyzed carbonylative addition reaction of aryl bromides, amines, and alkynes has been developed. The reaction ­occurs readily in N,N-dimethylformamide with PdCl2(PPh3)2 as a catalyst to give the corresponding enaminones in medium to excellent yields. Furthermore, a mechanism for the palladium-catalyzed four-component carbonylative addition reaction is proposed.
