A short and efficient synthesis of highly substituted tetrahydropyridines is achieved by a combination of enyne cross metathesis and aza-Diels-Alder reaction under high pressure. The reaction sequence shows atom economy and is compatible with a variety of functionalities being introduced by three building blocks: a monosubstituted alkyne, a terminal alkene, and an imine.
