Selective conjugate reaction (1,4 addition) of N-arylphosphazenes derived from triphenylphosphine to α,β-unsaturated carbonyl compounds yielded 2-quinolinecarboxylates. However, when more reactive phosphazene species derived from trimethylphosphine were used, selective reaction with the carbonyl carbon (1,2-addition) occurred and N-aryl 1-azadienes were obtained. Thermal 6π-azaelectrocyclization of these 1-azadienes afforded 4-quinolinecarboxylates.
