A series of quinolines were synthesized in moderate yields by one-pot reaction of nitroarenes and trialkylamines in the presence of a catalytic amount of ruthenium trichloride catalyst together with tricyclohexylphosphonium tetrafluoroborate ligand. This method is convenient without extra reductant, and nitroarenes are cheap and highly available. The structures of the products were characterized by IR,1H NMR,13C NMR, MS techniques and elemental analysis.

Key words: C—N bond formation, one-pot synthesis, quinolines, ruthenium catalyst, nitroarenes, trialkylamines
