The two steps route to furo[3,2-h]quinolines 4 or to furo[3,2-b]pyridines 17 involves an SRN1 reaction between 5-chloro-7-iodo-8-isopropoxyquinoline 1a or 2-bromo-3-isopropoxypyridin 15 and enolates derived from ketones. The subsritution products 3 or 16, lead to the title compounds under acidic treatment.
