Quinoline and some 4-substituted quinoline 1-oxides react with alkyl- and aryllithiums in the presence of an oxidant to afford 2-alkyl- and 2-arylquinoline 1-oxides in generally good yields. Among oxidants used, 9-fluorenone is most effective. On the other hand, quinaldine 1-oxide undergoes a base-induced electrophilic reaction with n-BuLi and 9-fluorenone to give 2-[(9-hydroxyfluoren-9-yl)methyl]quinoline 1-oxide.
