A silver-catalyzed sequential formation of two C-C bonds enabels the construction of a series of polysubstituted quinolines from anilines, aldehydes, and alcohols under mild conditions. The transformation is effective for a broad range of substrates, including aliphatic alcohols, arylalkanols, cycloalkanols, and ethylene glycol.
