4-Methoxyquinoline 1-oxide reacts with dimethyl acetylenedicarboxylate in boiling dioxane affords N-quinolinium ethylide (1), 2-substituted quinoline (2), furo[3,2-c]quinoline (3) and 9-oxo-tetrahydro-cis-furo[3,2-b]quinoline (4). Similar reactions readily proceed at low temperatures in dichloromethane, acetonitrile and DMF to give 2, 3 and 4.
