Cobalt­(III) and rhodium­(III) catalysts exhibited complementary scope in C–H amidation of aryl enaminones. The amidation reactions proceeded with broad scope under the assistance of a weakly coordinating and bifunctional enaminone directing group. The electrophilicity of the enaminone group can be further utilized in subsequent hydrolysis–cyclization reactions to afford NH 4-quinolones in telescoping reactions.
