The reaction of 4-chloroquinoline 1-oxide (1) with pinacolone and t-BuOK in t-BuNH2 at -10~-15°C gives 4-chloro-2-pinacolylquinoline 1-oxide in good yield by means of hydride-elimination. Similar reactions of 1 with acetone, 2-butanone, acetophenone, and ethyl and t-butyl acetates occur when treated with t-BuOK or n-BuLi in t-BuNH2 at -10~-15°C, or t-BuOK, KNH2 or NaNH2 in liq NH3 at -70°C. Reactions of this type proceed also with quinoline 1-oxide (2), 3-bromoquinoline 1-oxide (3), p-chloronitrobenzene (4) and nitrobenzene.
