Abstract: Treatment of 1,4,4-trimethyl-3,4-dihydroquinolin-2(1H)-one (2) with lithium diisopropylamide (LDA) followed by a wide range of electrophiles give the corresponding 4,4-dimethyl-3-substituted-3,4-dihydroquinolin-2-ones 3-13, providing a very mild electrophilic substitution of the 4,4-dimethyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinoline core.
Keywords: tetrahydroquinoline; electrophilic substitution; anti-diabetic agents
