Dearomatization provides numerous possibilities for the development of new transformative modes of aromatic compounds. A conceptually novel metal-free multicomponent domino reaction of the dearomatized products of 2-alkynylanilines is developed. The reaction involves the secondary amine-mediated transimination with α-amino nitriles and subsequent aromatization-triggered cascade rearrangement, nucleophilic cyclization, and retro-Strecker reaction. This process provided a new practical method for the rapid synthesis of polyfunctionalized 4-aminoquinolines from readily available starting materials.
