A new synthetic method was developed to access fluorine-containing chloroquine analogues which have unique potentials contributing to the discovery of novel anti-microorganisms. (7-Chloro-3-trifluoroacetylquinolin-4-yl)amines (7), thiols (8), and ethers (9) were easily synthesized in high yields by the trifluoroacetylation of 7-chloro-4-(N,N-dimethylamino)quinoline (6) with 1-trifluoroacetyl-4-dimethylaminopyridinium trifluoroacetate followed by the nucleophilic N-N, N-S, and N-O exchange reactions.
