A copper-catalyzed regiocontrolled three-component reaction afforded diversified 4-aminoquinolines using nitriles, diaryliodoniums, and ynamides. The C7-substituted regioisomers were formed regioselectively when meta-substituted phenyliodonium salts were used. [1,3] N-to-C rearrangement of the products to quinolin-4-ylmethanesulfonamides and simultaneous deprotection of benzyl and sulfonamide group were newly developed. Finally, antimalarial CK-2-68 was successfully prepared.
