A novel approach to producing the quinoline skeleton from 2-aminochalcone was developed. Treatment of benzyloxycarbonyl (Cbz)-protected 2-aminochalcones with BF3·Et2O afforded quinoline derivatives via the deprotection of the Cbz group and isomerization of olefin in a one-pot reaction. The reaction of various 2-aminochalcones proceeded to give the corresponding 2-arylquinoline derivatives in good yields. This method is applicable to the rapid synthesis of dubamine.
