A concise route to enantiomerically pure 2-substituted indolines 4a-g and a 2-substituted tetrahydroquinoline 4h has been developed by application of the Pd-catalyzed coupling of amino functionalised organozinc reagents with 2-bromoiodobenzene, followed by Buchwald's palladium-catalyzed intramolecular amination reaction. The yields in the initial coupling are modest (36-52%), but the cyclisation yields are satisfactory (63-87%). The stereochemical integrity of a representative example was established by chiral phase HPLC.
