A H2SO4-mediated intramolecular cyclization enables the preparation of biologically important tetrahydro-1-benzazepines from N-arylated homoallylamines. This solvent- and metal-free, atom- and step-economical transformation offers mild reaction conditions, experimental simplicity, and the use of a readily available, cheap, and nontoxic mediator.
