Rearrangement reaction of 8-(cycloalkenyloxy)quinolines and the acid-catalyzed cyclization of the products were investigated. These reactions afforded insights on interesting new heterocyclic systems. Depending on the size of the cycloalkenyl moiety, we could isolate benzofuro[3,2-h]quinoline, methanooxecino[3,2-h]quinoline, methanooxonino[3,2-h]quinoline, and/or spiro[cycloalkano-1,2′-furo[3,2-h]quinoline. The mechanism of the novel rearrangement reactions is also discussed. Graphical Abstract: [Figure not available: see fulltext.]
