AgOTf-catalyzed reaction of ortho-alkynyl-arylaldimines with various kinds of pronucleophiles afforded a variety of 1,2-dihydroisoquinoline derivatives in good to high yields. Treatment of ortho-alkynyl-arylaldimines with a stoichiometric amount of AgOTf, followed by the protonation with TfOH produced isoquinolinium trifluoromethanesulfonate, which suggested the formation of isoquinolinium intermediate in the present direct addition reaction.
