The title compounds (2a-h) were obtained in moderate yields by simply refluxing 1-alkyl-4-hydroxyquinolin-2(1H)-ones (1a,b) with a number of acetylenic halides in n-butanol in the presence of anhydrous potassium carbonate. Compounds (2h,i) were also obtained from 4-[2’-chloroprop-2-enyloxy][1]quinolin-2(1H)-ones (11a,b) via [3,3] sigmatropic rearrangement and cyclisation of the intermediate chloroallylic enols (13a,b) with aqueous ethanolic potassium hydroxide.
