The reaction of N-propargyl-6,8-bis(trifluoroacetyl)quinolin-5-amine (1) with various active methylene compounds gave the novel fluorine-containing 1,7-phenanthroline derivatives (3). Furthermore, changing the electron-withdrawing groups on active methylene compounds induced interesting alternation of the reaction site wherein the enolate anions attack first and led to construction of the different nitrogen-containing heterocyclic systems, 1,7-phenanthrolinone (4) and 1,4-dihydro-1,7-phenanthroline (5).
