Efficient Solvent-Free Synthesis of Quinolines Promoted by BiCl3
Abstract:Poly-substituted quinolines are readily prepared in excellent yields via a Friedlander reaction of oaminoarylketone or o-aminoarylaldehyde with α-methylene ketones in the presence of BiCl3 under solventfree and thermal heating conditions.
