An efficient palladium(II)-catalyzed C-C coupling/cyclization reaction by directed C-H activation of benzamidine and terminal alkynes enables a practical and high-yielding synthesis of quinolines, in which the C-N bond acts as an internal oxidant. When using benzamidine with an ortho-methyl substituent, a [1,5]-hydrogen migration followed by a Diels-Alder reaction with terminal alkynes take place.
