Intermolecular Michael addition of an amine to a (Z)-β-chlorovinyl ketone followed by elimination of a chloride anion provides enamine intermediates, with full retention of the initial Z-configuration. These intermediates can be transformed into quinolin-4(1H)-one products by a palladium-catalyzed intramolecular N-arylation in a tandem one-pot manner, with good to excellent yields.
