Aromatic nucleophilic substitution reaction of 4-dimethyl-amino-2-methoxy-3-trifluoroacetylquinoline with various nucleophiles (NuH) such as amines, thiols, and alcohols proceeded chemoselectively to give the corresponding Me2N-Nu exchanged products, 2-methoxy-3-trifluoroacetyl-4-quinolylamines, sulfides, and ethers without any formation of MeO-Nu exchanged products in spite of the common knowledge that alkoxy group is the better leaving group than amino group.
