The reaction of N-aryl substituted ketenimines with enol ethers under 800 MPa gave quinoline derivatives, which formed by cyclization between the C=C-N=C aza-diene moieties of N-aryl substituted ketenimines and the C=C double bond moieties of enol ethers. When cyclic enol ethers such as 2,3-dihydrofurans or 3,4-dihydro-2H-pyrans were used as dienophiles, quinoline derivatives that had substituents with hydroxyalkyl or oxoalkyl side chains on the C-3 positions were synthesized in one step reaction.
