A systematic study of α-iodination and subsequent Suzuki-Miyaura couplings between non-attenuated enaminones and a wide range of aromatic boronic acids is reported. The microwave-assisted variant of this transformation furnished the α-arylenaminones in significantly shorter reaction times and slightly improved yields as compared to conventional heating.
