A general, selective, and practical one-pot synthesis of 2-substituted 4(3H)-quinazolinones by the Yb(OTf)3-catalyzed cyclo-condensation of 2-aminobenzamides with acyclic or cyclic 1,3-diketones (β-diketones) under mild and neutral reaction conditions has been developed, which involves the highly selective cleavage of a C-C bond in 1,3-diketones by Yb(OTf)3 catalyst. For example, the Yb(OTf)3-catalyzed cyclo-condensation of 2-aminobenzamide (1a) with 1-phenylbutane-1,3-dione (2c) gave 2-methyl-4(3H)-quinazolinone (3a) in 90% yield, together with acetophenone in 65% yield. Ring-opening cyclo-condensation of 2-aminobenzamides (1a) with cyclic 1,3-diketones (2i and 2k-m), except for cyclopentane-1,3-dione (2j), gave 2-substitued 4(3H)-quinazolinones (3i and 3k-m) with one carbonyl group.
