An efficient and environmentally benign Cu-mediated method was developed for direct cascade C–H/N–H annulation to construct polyheterocyclic indoloquinoline scaffolds. This method highlights an emerging strategy for transforming inert C–H bonds into versatile functional groups in organic synthesis and provides a new versatile approach for the efficient synthesis of indolo­[3,2-c] and [2,3-c]­quinoline alkaloids.
