ABSTRACT Highly efficient syntheses of novel fluorine bearing quinoline-4-carboxylic acids and the related compounds had been achieved from cyclocondensation of 2-amino-5-fluorophenyl glyoxylic acid 1 with benzoyle asetanilides 2 in boiling DMF, to give the target 3. Decarboxylation of 3 produced 6-fluoro-2-phenyl-3-(substituted amino)-keto-quinolines 4, while that reaction underwent refluxing, afforded 7-fluoro-1-(aryl)-3-phenyl-pyrrolo[3,4-c] quinoline-2,9-diones 5. Structure of the products has been established from their elemental and spectral analysis. All targets exhibited a high to moderate activity against some Aspergillus fungi as amylolytic agents.
