An acid-promoted [5+1] annulation of 2-vinylanilines with diazo compounds for the synthesis of 2-arylquinolines was developed. The strategy applies cheap and available anilines and diazo compounds as substrates, and generates 24 kinds of 2-arylquinolines in metal-free catalysis with excellent functional group tole-rance in moderate to good yields. This method not only provides an efficient, economical and simple approach for the synthesis of 2-arylquinolines, but also enriches the organic reactions of diazo compounds.

Key words: Acid-promoted [5+1] annulation, Metal-free catalysis, 2-Arylquinoline
