The one-pot synthesis of 2-arylquinoline with arylamines, arylaldehyde, and 1,1-diethoxyethane were studied using a catalytic amount ytterbium triflate. Various 2-arylquinolines showed fluorescence properties and the fluorescence was quenched by introducing the nitro group into aryl moiety of 2-arylquinolines.
