Treatment of 4-arylamino-8-iodoquinoline derivatives with propargyl alcohol and triethylamine in the presence of iodo(phenyl)bis(triphenylphosphine) palladium and copper (I) iodide gives 6-imino-substituted pyrrolo[3,2,1-ij]quinolines under mild conditions and in moderate yields. Catalytic hydrogenation over Lindlar’s catalyst affords functionalised 4H-pyrrolo[3,2,1-ij]quinolines in good yield.
