The rhodium(III)-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction of 8-methylquinolines and maleimides is described. In contrast to the C(sp2)–H functionalization, a first catalytic functionalization of sp3 C–H bonds with maleimides is reported. This protocol provides a facile access to various succinimide scaffolds on 8-methylquinolines via a direct C–H cleavage approach.
