A copper(I)-catalyzed protocol is developed for the synthesis of various 2,3-diaroylquinolines starting from achiral ammonium salts and anthranils through [4+1+1] annulation. Using copper(I) chloride as the sole catalyst, this reaction is featured with easily available starting materials, broad substrate scope, good yields and simple reaction conditions.
