The one-pot tandem reaction of N-alkyl-N-allyl-2-vinylaniline derivatives with benzo- or naphthoquinones and a ruthenium–alkylidene catalyst leads to isoindolo[2,1-a]quinolines in a variety of colors, which can be altered by exchanging the substituent on the core heterocycle (see scheme). This reaction offers a new synthetic method for π-conjugated small molecules from simple aniline derivatives.
