A simple and green route towards disubstituted quinolines via A3-coupling using 1 mol% FeCl3 is described. Using this approach, the above-mentioned derivatives were synthesized in moderate to good yields (45-95%) under solvent-free, microwave conditions. Preliminary investigations have indicated that a further decrease in catalyst amount is possible with a satisfactory yield still observed.
