Quinoline Synthesis

What is it about?

An easy way to synthesis of substituted quinolines is described. Simple reaction of aldehyde, amine and styrenes in the presence of iron(III) chloride afford quinolines in high yields.

Why is it important?

The method is very simple and proceeds with easily available starting materials.
