A five-step solid-phase synthesis of isoxazolinopyrrole-2-carboxylates (6) that employs a traceless sulfone linker strategy is reported. Resin-bound diene 4, obtained by acetylation and concomitant β-elimination of acetate from resin-bound allylic alcohol 3, underwent regioselective 1,3-dipolar cycloadditons with nitrile oxides. Formation of the pyrrole products in a resin-releasing strategy was performed by pyrrole annulation with alkyl isocyanoacetates, which react with the vinyl sulfone moiety to generate the target isoxazolinopyrrole-2-carboxylates (6). Use of this chemistry afforded eight isoxazolinopyrrole-2-carboxylates in 6-24% overall yields from polystyrene/divinylbenzene sulfinate 1.
