A one-step synthesis of 2,4-unsubstituted quinoline-3-carboxylic acid esters from o-nitrobenzaldehydes.


PMID 20420395

Abstract

A straightforward and efficient one-step procedure for the synthesis of 2,4-unsubstituted quinoline-3-carboxylic acid ethyl esters is described. The simple reductive cyclization is carried out by treating various substituted o-nitrobenzaldehydes with inexpensive, commercially available 3,3-diethoxypropionic acid ethyl ester and SnCl(2).2H(2)O in refluxing ethanol.
