Treatment of N-tosylphenylacetamide derivatives with cop-per(II) acetate in the presence of a catalytic amount of palladi-um(II) acetate affords 3,3-disubstituted oxindoles. The reaction proceeds through the intramolecular metallation of an aromatic C-H bond and the following C-N bond formation by reductive elimination.
