A Mn(III) mediated cascade cyclization of new designed multifunctionalized 3-isocyano-[1,1′-biphenyl]-2-carbonitrile with arylboronic acid to construct pyrrolopyridine derivatives is developed. A series of pyrroloporidine compounds have been constructed through the formation of two new C–C bonds and one C–N bond via a radical pathway.
