Herein, a regioselective synthesis of indolizino[3,4,5-ab]isoindoles, a valuable class of heterocycles with interesting luminescence properties, is described using manganese(i)-catalyzed C–H activation. The reported transformation proceeds in one-step and employs readily available 2-phenylpyridines as starting materials. Furthermore, the obtained single products exhibit blue-greenish fluorescence with high quantum yields.
