This study describes diversity-oriented synthesis of 2,2,3-substituted-2,3-dihydroquinolin-4(1H)-ones vs. functionalised quinoline or N-alkenylindole derivatives through Brønsted acid mediated or Lewis acid catalyzed sequential reactions of 2-alkynylanilines with ketones. In particular, a series of challenging quinolin- 4-one derivatives are prepared with good functional group tolerance in an atom-economical fashion by using p-toluenesulfonic acid monohydrate as a promoter of the reaction of ketones with 2-alkynylanilines in EtOH at reflux, while the same starting materials give the corresponding 4-substituted quinolines in toluene at 110 °C both in the presence of p-toluenesulfonic acid monohydrate as the promoter and FeCl3 as the catalyst. The divergent formation of N-alkenylindole derivatives occurs by switching to the use of ZnBr2 as the catalyst under the same reaction conditions.

Abstract

This study describes diversity-oriented synthesis of 2,2,3-substituted-2,3-dihydroquinolin-4(1H)-ones vs. functionalised quinoline or N-alkenylindole derivatives through Brønsted acid mediated or Lewis acid catalyzed sequential reactions of 2-alkynylanilines with ketones. In particular, a series of challenging quinolin- 4-one derivatives are prepared with good functional group tolerance in an atom-economical fashion by using p-toluenesulfonic acid monohydrate as a promoter of the reaction of ketones with 2-alkynylanilines in EtOH at reflux, while the same starting materials give the corresponding 4-substituted quinolines in toluene at 110 °C both in the presence of p-toluenesulfonic acid monohydrate as the promoter and FeCl3 as the catalyst. The divergent formation of N-alkenylindole derivatives occurs by switching to the use of ZnBr2 as the catalyst under the same reaction conditions. Conversely, only 4-methylsubstituted quinoline derivatives were isolated by reacting 2-ethynylanilines and/or 2-trimethylsylilanilines with ketones in all examined cases.
