An oxidative cross-dehydrogenative coupling (CDC) strategy enables an efficient acylation of quinolines and isoquinolines with arylmethanols as the acylating agents. This C-aroylation reaction was carried out in the presence of K2S2O8 as oxidant and methyltrioctylammonium chloride (Aliquat 336) as transfer agent in MeCN at 80°C under transition-metal-free conditions.
