Pyrrole-2-carboxylates exist widely in biologically active molecules and have many important applications in the field of medicine. Therefore, the synthesis of pyrrole-2-carboxylates has received extensive attention. The transition metal- catalyzed cycloaddition reactions are widely used in the synthesis of pyrrole skeletons and have the advantages of regio- selectivity. The formation methods of C—N bonds directed by transition metal ligand have some advantages, such as milder reaction conditions, higher atomic step economy, efficiency and selectivity. The reactions of [3+2], [4+1] and [2+2+1] cycloaddition are reviewed, and the reaction mechanism and application of pyrrole-2-carboxylate compounds are introduced under various transition-metal conditions. The prospects of the synthesis of pyrrole-2-carboxylates are also discussed.

Key words: pyrrole-2-carboxylate, transition metal catalysis, C—N bond formation
